    i own a Dolphin also. Sexy as all get out!
    I avoid getting wax on the neck, the beeswax has a low melting temp and gets gummy with sweat and the summer heat (I have owned 10+ warwicks over the years)

    I clean with naptha and then a bit of mineral oil / Bore oil just to seal and add sheen and seal.
    Wax is great on the body headstock ETC.
    when the fretboard needs a dressing (oxidized frets) I use a DRY melamine sponge followed by a oil dampened microfibre cloth and hand buff to sheen.

    Yup. Been into Hicks since Tool/Aenima and went from there. My bro was a big Sam Kinison fan, so I was already prepped for the day I discovered Hicks. They don't make 'em like that anymore it seems :)

    I almost didn't open the thread, but then I thought, ah, it's TB, somebody has a joke going. Sure enough.

    Yeah I got introduced to Hicks in the same way. One of the best if not THE best IMO.
