i'll lurk, as this could be interesting.

if you don't mind me widening the terms of the thread a little, i'll also ask, what type of guitar polishes won't hurt a nitro finish, and guitar stands?

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.

EDIT: oh, now you mention it, i think acetone reacts with nitrocellulose. i read on another forum that that can be used to test if you have a nitro finish (obviously you'd do it inside a trem cavity or something where you couldn't see it).

Acetone should react with nitrocellulose, since nitrocellulose is used in nailpolish and nailpolish remover is diluted acetone.

I'd be carefull around any solvent like acetone, thinner, carb and brake cleaner, etc. Even be carefull around more nitrocellulose(liquid form). Nitro will disolve into itself if dripped on the surface, but, this is a nice things about nitro when fixing dings. You can fill small dings with more nitro, wait at least a week to let it cure, then sand it down and polish to match the surface again.

As for a good polish to use on nitro...I started using Dunlop 65 on a guitar I built that I sprayed nitro for the finish. It works great and hasn't caused any damage. Before that I was using the polish from Martin Guitars, which, is nitro safe...at least it never damaged the finish on the previously mentioned guitar and my Martin 000C-16RGTE(it has a nitro finish on the spruce top).

^ thanks for that! I think i have some dunlop 65 here already.

I've heard if you clean your guitar with furniture polish it wear through a nitro finish, too.

It depends on what is in the furniture polish. I don't remember what furniture polish contains that isn't good for the finish. Could be the fact that it's oily and acidic, but some things to look out for

bleach- obvious
acetone
silicon
diatoms - abrasive bacteria, found in toothpaste and some cleaners

No, but a case is recommended.

Gigbags offer less protection, and nitrocellulose offers very little protection against anything really.

The point of nitrocellulose is to seal the majority of moisture from coming in and protect the paint, to allow the guitar to age properly by slowly drying out from the inside out, and to effect guitar tone as little as possibly by truly letting the wood sing.

No, gigbags are usually some type of nylon/cotton deal with a little foam between the cloth.

Nitrocellulose is meant to wear off as you play it as well, which aids in the drying of the wood.
