1 Scott Lyons 2 years ago All, Normally I differ to moist breath & soft cloth to polish my guitars & remove sweat & general play smudges from my guitar finishes. Be it cumbersome, time consuming, & not entirely effective on instruments with significant grime, I've used this method for over twenty years on Vintage & new instruments with safe & satisfying results. Not to mention, I have read that at least one author of a guitar maintenance book recommends this method for normal everyday guitar cleaning & polishing. Today I'm putting out the feelers to fellow Gretsch enthusiasts on guitar polishes safe for Lacquer. My understanding is that many guitar polishes have a slight abrasive quality which actually remove some of the outer layer of the guitars finish & then leave a silicone based compound behind to fill the microscopic area removed by the abrasiveness & promote shine & protection. That's fine & all, but I'm sure all polishes are not equal & there may be some that are better suited to Urethane & some to Lacquer. Anyone have any recommendation for Lacquer safe guitar polishes?
