    Well I can't seem to find Warwick wax in any of the local music shops without having them order it in, and my new bubinga Corvette is only a week or so from arriving, so if possible I don't want to order anything from online.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for perhaps some kind of household wax or polish I might be able to find at the hardware shop or whatever? For what it's worth, I live in the UK.

    Thanks muchos!

    Yeah, warwick wax is just bee's wax with a different scent, haha, and the colours a bit different, theres a big tub of it randomly in the cupboard which i found a while back, so when my warwick tin runs out, im sorted!
