I wouldnt recommend using stuff like that, it could corrode, damage, and mess up your finish. I just use a moist towel, but you can buy cleaning products for guitars for cheap.

OMG! thats the stupidest shit i have ever heard. WD40? dont be surprised if you guitar like melts...

Heres what you do to clean your guitar.

face cloth, hot water, squeeze all the hot water out until its moist. whipe down the body and theyre should be no water on the guitar because the cloth was squeezed out and only damp. that will take of all the gunk.

To clean the fretboard, I ussualy use lemon oil, or orange glo or w/e. It moisturizes the wood, and makes sure to whipe it all clean after it has sat on the neck for a couple minutes to obsorb it.

WD 40 is a solvent, so it might well eat the finish and is NOT a good idea.

WD40 is fine, just as most other solvent based cleaning products. They won't hurt your guitars finish, the modern poly finishes on guitars today are basically rock hard plastic. They can virtually withstand any solvent you can dump on them. Would I suggest using it though? No, but in the long run it will ruin your finish.

I just use good old breath and a duster. On things like the frets I've used T-Cut in the past, and the same on scratched pickguards. Worked wonders. But on the body itself and the neck finish, I juse use breath and elbow grease.

The only people I know with that kind of breath spend their days sat on the War Memorial with 2 litre bottles of White Lightning. And you might want to start cleaning your elbows properly if they're greasy, unless you work in a chippy in which case no point!

My mum always used to look at me in amazement when she saw me walk past with the Mr Sheen and a duster...her face fell when I said "I'm cleaning my guitar...not my room!"
