Today I bought some guitar polish to make my Schecter Hellraiser shine. I went into the guitar shop and asked for some guitar polish for a guitar with a high gloss finsih and he recomended Kyser Dr. Stringfellow Guitar Polish.

So I buy it, bring it home and read up on the directions of use and the rest of it. I then discovered some writing which says 'Best polish for guitars and other wood surfaces' . This worried me as I now feel this polish is for a wood finish guitar and not suitable for my glossy schecter eventhough I asked the man in the shop about it.

Has anyone used this polish on a glossy guitar? Is it ok to use?

I don't use any polish at all..at least not on the body finish...

Just a nice clean cotton rag (like a Tshirt) and some elbow grease (maybe a little spit).
Makes it shine really nice.

try it on a small area on the back in a 'corner' just remember wax on, wax off


Yeh, this is what I was planning on doing but I don't want to open the polish to find it is no good and can't take it back. Plus my guitar is my baby and I don't know if I could stand any tiny imperfection.

Ok I've finally come to the conclusion that this is not the right polish for me. I've been googling for a while and it seems it is for fretboards and other oil treat wood surfaces. Guna take it back to the shop 2 moro and get it changed. Not happy, the guy in there recomended it =[.

Elbow grease is just a figure of speech, meaning to put effort into it. He means using his arms to scrub/wipe at it.

You might want to watch out with the polish, I've asked about it before and the guy I spoke with recommended one type of polish for the glossy finish and then lemon oil for the fretboard, which is unfinished wood. I got Dunlop 65 for glossy body polish, and it works very well.
