    Does anyone have any tips for cleaning a maple neck with a gloss finish? I don't want to damage the finish, obviously, but its feeling a bit sticky and gunky. Thanks a ton!

    Warm water in a spray bottle w/ a little dish washing soap. (like a full bottle of water, 1 drop of soap).......This is only for the neck/gloss finished body..don't put it on the fingerboard!

    Wather is fine of course, but I have also used standard (Martin) guitar polish to clean everything on a finnished guitar.
