Subject: RE: Guitar polish
I didn't read smurf as wanting to change the matt finish on the guitar to a gloss finish, but just wanted advice on how to look after it so it looks its best.

I much prefer the look of a matt finish anyway, and probably the sound too - though given the difference between individual guitars I can't really imagine any way of checking out that.

I give matt finish instruments a very occasional rubdown with a rag with a bit of linseed oil on it, and wouldn't go any further than that. Makes them look happier.
