ok guys...great news! i've finally gotten my s470! too bad i don't have a camera...but i'll try to get some photos on soon~

ok,so heres the problem...the previous owner had a couple of stickers on it...and after getting them off,theres still some kind of sticky residue on the body...does anyone know how to get rid of them effectively? *i'm sure you get what i mean..* i mean,safely of course...i don't want to ruin the finish...which is orange btw

and,on the metal rim which holds the pickups,theres some kind of fungus...i'm not really sure what it is...but any suggestions on how to clean it?

um, no idea...does he often have trouble with sticky residues? lol

edit: Goo Gone is just a citrus-based cleaner for removing grease, tar, gum, sticker/tape, crayon etc, without being harsh on delicate surfaces. Worked well whenever I needed it, but i'm sure other stuff can work.

I want an s470
Use something like s very fine steel wool.

On a guitar?
Are you insane? Scratches galore no matter how fine you use.

Damp cloth and elbow grease.
