This stuff is probably a safe bet

Thanks mate, I'll get myself some of that The instruction manual that came with my guitar recommended using that but it had been out of stock the past few weeks.

No worries. To be honest I'd agree with James about the oil being more for actual cleaning but the conventional wisdom seems to be that it helps maintain the fretboard as well so clearly it's a case of preference and YMMV. I bought a fairly small bottle of lemon oil maybe 8 or so years ago and it's probably still more than half full. The cloth's the most important thing IMO, just need a bit of patience to polish everything up once in a while but it's worth it to get them looking all shiny and whatnot - I usually give mine a going over if they're looking a bit grim and I've got a spare moment and then do a more thorough job whenever I change the strings.

its amazing how refreshed the wood looks after a good oiling, can make it look fresh and new fairly quickly!

My Metallic Red Anniversary MA-2.
Just wondering if anyone could give me tips for cleaning it, body? neck? hardware?

Cheers.

I should have a good few microfibre clothes lying around that would be suitable to do the job
Since I've never really had a guitar this valuable I'll start some more research into the topic.
Thanks for all the advice!

If he uses that for his floor boards imagine what woods his guitars are made of! If that was my floor there wouldn't be a day that went by without cock-splinters.

maybe. Or maybe I overloaded myself perving on pictures of gear and started to look past the gear into the floors of beauty.

Honestly I wish i'd never heard a musical note in my life and just laid wooden floors for a living.
