How should I clean my guitar? Answered

My guitar is looking real dirty and I want it clean.


You definitely should not use soap. Soap can actually damage the finish. I just lightly wipe it with a moist, but not wet rag or paper towel.

What if anything does naptha do to a nitrocellulose finish.

. Nothing. That's why ppl use it. It is a good degreaser.

SD hit the nail on the head but i want to add something to his comment i recommend dusting it off before you actually clean it and then take a moist towelette and wipe it down then do what SD said its what i do with my electric bass (its black so it always looks dirty)
