I'm just curious to know what everyone is using to keep their babies looking good. I've only tried about 4 options up to this point and here they are in the order that I have tried them. Fender Guitar Polish Initially, I liked this product. The more I used it, the harder it seemed to be to get rid of all of those little smudges that accumulate from use. After a point my finishes were always kind of dull and blurred. Herco Instrument Polishing Cloth Bad decision with this choice. It's a treated cloth and I could not get a good shine even after using a clean cloth as a follow up. The packing states that it "Works well on all metal and wooden instruments." Take my advice please. Don't try this stuff on you bass! Oh yeah, it also smells terrible! Peavey Guitar Polish Formula This stuff is great! It removes smudges well and leaves a very nice shine. It's also the least expensive in my area as I can get a 4 oz. bottle for $2.99 USD or less. The only problem is that the dealers sometimes don't have it in stock and I'm forced to try something else. Planet Waves Guitar Polish Spray I just got a bottle of this and so far it's alright. I need to use it a bit longer to see if my opinion changes. It cleans well, leaves a good shine and it's definitely the best smelling out the ones that I've tried. I've heard good things about the polish "Virtuoso" but ten bucks is a bit steep for a bottle of polish to me. That is, unless there's just something about it that is supremely better than the options that I had good experiences with above. The luthier that I use told me to stay away from Gibson products but his reasons escape me at the moment. I'll have to ask him again. I'd love to hear about other options that have worked well. Thanks.
