Make My Baby Shiny!


Recommended Posts

Hey, I have an Ibanez guitar and I'm trying to make it look new so I can sell it and get a Les Paul. I saw on some other topics that people were using Windex to make it shine but, for some reason it won't work for me. Is there like anything that is made to make guitars shine if so, could you tell me the store/brand name. And possibly the price because I don't wanna spend $40.00 on something that might not even work.

P.S. This is my first post and I'm not sure if it's in the right place but I am 99.99% sure that it is...

Yeah normally when I get done finishing a guitar I use a 3m machine polish called finishing it. It comes in a black bottle and can be found at most automotive stores I usually get it from o reily.

I use a product called S100 "shine enhancing cleanser".

The Harley dealers carry it. It has very fine abrasives in it that break down as you rub with it, so it's like your buffing out your finish by hand but but it's very gentle on the finish and wont scratch it like waxes will. I do it every 6 months or so on my guitars and it really makes them look wonderful.

It's not cheap, at around $15 a bottle.

Here is the link. It's the one on the left. Great stuff for sure.

You could also try Maguiers Swirl remover #9 followed by Maguier's Final polish #7. It really gives you a super gloss !-Marky
