    So I finally used up the last of the bottle of Martin Guitar Polish that I bought in 1989 -- so long ago that I can't find a picture of the label on the internet.

    For my instruments it worked great, so I'm not necessarily looking for anything different or better...but i can't help but presume that possibly there have been some improvements in instrument polish over the past 24 years!

    So, what's everybody using nowadays to polish your basses?

    None of my instruments are older than 30 years, none of them have nitro finishes or anything that requires proprietary care, I'm just looking for something that will remove fingerprints and make them shiny. Or shinier.


    [edit: Title is a joke, I'm looking for something to polish the finished wood bodies and the back of the neck, not the metal hardware.

    Brass polish, and silver polish are two completely different chemicals. Beware of using any product on metal that is not formulated for the project in front of you. It's better to have tears of frustration finding the right chemical to buy, than the result from laying on the wrong one.
