  • Anyone else Wax their Axe

    I’ve been polishing with synthetic car wax five or so years now.
    I was using Shine Armor but have switched to Turtle wax.

    No. Can’t say I’ve ever done that. I wipe mine off sometimes. That’s about it.

      I wipe them down after I finish playing. I also clean & condition the fretboards and polish them when I change strings. I have been through a lot fretboard cleaner, conditioner and polish over the years. There is also Carnauba Bodygloss, basically Wax, in my kit, but I have never used it. The polish always seems to get the job done.

          I have moderate bilateral hearing loss in the upper midrange and lower treble. I tend to think sounds are quieter, darker, and bassier than they probably really are.

                Every once in a great while when I’m getting it in tip
                top shape, but then it’s greasy so i don’t do it for another 4 years.
                Oh no.....

                    A couple times a year I hit the boards & necks with Burts Feed & Wax. Lately, I've been doing a light polish on the bodies with it, too.

                      Bought some Fender guitar polish in 2000 with my first guitar. Used some last week. Seems to work still.

                        I use Birchwood Casey gunstock wax on the neck of my Ernie Ball. Every year, there is a process of sanding the neck with 600 & 1000 grit paper, cleaning with Murphy's Oil soap, and using the wax. I wouldn't use any wax on hard finishes, though.

                          I haven't *yet*, but I do use Meguiar's polishing compound to get rid of swirl marks every once in a while.

                            If you posted some before and after pics I feel more of us would become inclined to do so...

                              I use turtle wax once in a while on my guitars. every couple years. takes some of the surface scratches out and shines it up a bit, gives it a nice coating for a while too
