hey all,

i just bought a new guitar (Epiphone Les Paul Standard) and i want to keep it clean/avoid dirt build up (like on the fretboard) as much as possible when i'm not playing it.

i do regularly clean my guitars, i'm thinking more between cleanings.

any suggestions? i was thinking about keeping it in my gig bag, zipped up.

thanks!

yeah that'll keep dust off it, but won't really stop the fretboard build up.

wash your hands before playing, that helps a bit.

but really it's just a matter of cleaning it when it gets dirty, lol.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Wash your hands, invest in cleaners and polish and wipe after you use it.


Clean your fingerboard every time you change strings. I use a credit card or steel wool depending on how tough the grime is.

Have a decontamination chamber to use after playing, keep/maintain guitar in a dust free/sterile lab, and wear a hazmat suit.

Just let it build up and clean it off when you change strings. A credit card works well as someone already said. Look at it as incentive to change your strings more often
