Frequently Asked Questions
How to clean acoustic guitar fretboard?
A good way to clean an acoustic guitar fretboard is by using a soft cloth, preferably from the same material as your guitar. You should not use alcohol, oils, or grease because they will damage your fretboard. You should also avoid using solvents like turpentine, as they can weaken the protective coatings on the neck and cause it to crack over time.
Can I clean my acoustic guitar with water?
It is not advised to clean your acoustic guitar with water. Water will not remove the dirt and will only make it wet. When you want to clean your acoustic guitar, the best thing to do is get a dry cloth or an electric guitar cleaner and clean it thoroughly.
How do you polish a guitar at home?
Polishing a guitar is not difficult. You can do it by following these steps. Clean the guitar with a dry cloth to remove dirt and oils. Polish the surface with a piece of chamois leather (avoid using paper towels or tissues). Wipe off any access you might have gotten on the body and neck. Apply lemon oil to give the guitar back some shine.
