so i bought an old 1930's acoustic today that has been sitting in a closet forever and the strings had been on there for years. the fretboard cleaned up nice with some lemon oil but what can i use to get all the stuck on dirt off of the body?

You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

Naphtha. It's a type of lighter fluid, but it works amazingly well as a guitar cleaner. Just don't smoke while you're cleaning.

I prefer my lighter fluid. Smells better than Windex, that's for sure.

i second that. naphtha works pretty damn good. cuts thru a lot of gunk.

The polish Gibson make is extremely good. It's more expensive than lighter fluid or naptha (although I can see some real advantages to using those, specially if you want to ignite your guitar and pretend to be Hendrix ) but it's great and goes a long way. It even has a a bit of nitro-cellulose in it which can't be a bad thing, it helps fill the scratches.
A lot of domestic cleaners have additives that I wouldn't want on my expensive guitars, the Gibson stuff has worked well for me for years.
