What products do you use to clean your basses,chrome tuners and brdges?
meguiars stuff is top notch. i have sum gibson guitar polish, and a meguiar's cloth.
A cloth, and some elbow grease!
I don't. Not the hardware, anyway.
I use Fender guitar polish mostly for the fingerboard on my fretless. It's just what I have right now. Usually, the cheapest polish is the one I get, and it lasts me a long time.
Stewart MacDonald preservation polish for the body and usually nothing for the metal except a clean cloth. The preservation polish is silicone free, and they have a very lengthy and thorough explanation of why they think traditional guitar polishes (most of which contain silicone) are bad. I dunno, it works great, and I trust their opinion.
For unfunished fingerboards like rosewood, I use "guitar honey fingerboard conditioner". Nice stuff! or I'll use pure lemon oil.
if there is scratches in the finish, I'll use novus 3 step plastic polish. Meguiars stuff is great too, just hard to know which # you need for how deep the scratching is
Virtuoso Cleaner, then polish on the body. And Autosol on the hardware.
Dunlop Formula 65. All the way around.
clr & steel wool.
Dunlop 65 or Sadowsky polish. Non woven cloth
same here, plus ill clean up the fretboard with some lemon oil during string changes. I dont really bother cleaning the hardware.
warwick wax....i dont worry about the hardware...also i have a warwick so probbaly no help to you
Don't forget to use Dunlap 02 for the fingerboard.
Stuff is called "redwood" guitar polish.
Flitz polish for tarnished chrome works great and I have had a bottle of Alembic Spray cleaner for the past year or so the bottle is huge I think Ill have it for at least another year definitely, I normally just wipe my basses down with a soft cloth after I play.
yeah i live by the beach,so i also need some hardware tips.
Do you really put guitar polish on the fingerboard? Does anyone else here do that?
I've never heard of that. I thought guitar polish was just for wood with a finish. Does your fingerboard have a finish of some kind?
Sure. I spray it on everything. Especially maple boards.
On the bottle of Redwood, it recommends too apply a generous amount to the fingerboard.
Windex and a white tshirt.
