Well I went for it :) Feels really nice. Quite light and the neck is very comfortable. Now I just need to pretend that I can play a bass on my recordings. Thanks for your input!

I like it in as far as it seems OK. I don't really know if $170 AUD is too much for this as a used model as I cant find much info on it.

If someone has one or has had one I'd value their opinion.

Zippo lighter fluid is fine. It is about as Naptha as Naptha gets. It both cleans and evaporates very quickly. It won't harm the wood.

I use it all the time.

I use a dot of Meguiars Fine Cut Cleaner on a soft rag and some elbow grease. Makes those frets pop right up. Tape up the fretboard so it doesn't get into the woodgrain if you have unsealed fretboard.
