Just wondering if there are any tips in looking after a solid top acoustic guitar.
Mine has no gloss, but I just want to know how to get rid of/avoid scratches and generally keep everything looking nice.

Keep it at the right humidity levels (roughly 40-60) and just give it a good rub down with a 100% cotton or microfibre cloth.

As for scratches... there's absolutely nothing you can do. Just don't be stupid with it is all, haha. My first guitar doesn't have gloss either. All matte finish. That bad boy is dinged up like hell. I find that scratches give the guitar it's own uniqueness and personality. It shows that I've actually played my guitar thoroughly. I'm definitely more attached to my acoustic guitars because I know where every single ding and scratch came from.
