Cleaning and polishing a guitar is the first thing every player should learn. It's the most basic maintenance task which, if done properly, will help retain or even restore an instrument's looks and value.

Prevention is better than cure
If cleaning is carried out regularly from the time a guitar is new, it is a simple task, taking only a few minutes to keep things in top condition.

Levels of cleaning
There are four levels of cleaning: wiping down, light polishing, cream polishing and cleaning. While that may sound like it's a lot of work, in reality if you wipe your guitar down regularly and give it a light polish occasionally, cream polishing is rarely needed and cleaning almost never.

I couldn't work out if this was Spam or not, so I deleted a link to Bluegrass Guitar Tabs at the end of the post and let it stay.

OK - in that case, post it openly, without the guitar cleaning cover, under "Indie Sales and Site/ Product Promotion"

And, if it's a link to a commercial site, then you'll need to talk to Paul (who owns GN) about him taking your paid advertising.

I spilled Jonnie walker Black on my tele once and FDR, my Swiss mountain Dog cleaned up. I must say, it did restore its looks and value.

Welcome, connie jones, by the way. A very peculiar but original first post - do you play guitar too?
