Thread Name: Removing wax polish from guitars
Subject: RE: Removing wax polish from guitars
You might try a soft cloth with some turpentine to wipe the guitar down and then buff it with a clean soft cloth. I have had reasonably good succes with this. However, not knowing what you have for a guitar cannot guarantee that turpentine will not affect the finish. Turpentine will not react on synthetic laquer finishes and am quite sure it will not affect egg shell laquer. Urathane finishes is a different matter Most any good guitar polish and cleaner, such as Martin or Hidersol should remove the excess wax quite effectively with a couple applications. Good Luck. Hope this helps
