About 8 months ago, I picked up a Fender American Vintage Re-Issue ’62 Jazzmaster. I’ve been having a lot of fun with that guitar.Â Definitely has it’s quirks, and I’m really starting to understand why they have such and interesting following. The neck/body has a nitro finish. Every time I open the guitar case, it smells like play-doh. Over the months of playing the finish has been reacting and smudging with various amounts of sweat and dirt. My other nitro guitars do the same thing, it’ll basically start building up on certain spots on the body and neck. I thought it might be time to give it a proper treatment and get her all cleaned up.
I just recently looked at the Dunlop System 65 Guitar Maintenance Kit, which has should do the job nicely.Â Basically, the kit comes with a couple of cloths and five cleaning solutions. Two body cleaners/polishers, fingerboard oil, fret cleaner and string cleaner. I’ve messed with fingerboard oils in the past, and string cleaners, but never had a complete kit for everything. I think this is just what the doctor ordered, and my guitars will be happy after some treatment.
