So I've wiped the fret board, put rubbing alcohol on the strings and I'm about to redo the wiring.

Any thing else i should do?

redo the winding?

and why did you put rubbing alcohol on the strings?

Don't redo the winding.....just put new strings on

Give her a decent setup, if you know how to.

If you redo the wiring just take your time with it and make sure the solder joints are all strong.

Cheers,

Dave.

WIREing... With WIRES

Rubbing alcohol is supposed to make old strings less dull sounding

you are not meant to use rubbing alcohol. it has water in it and that can tarnish you strings.

you are meant to use 'methylated spirits' ('denatured alcohol' to you americans) as this cleans the strings but has no water in it.

EDIT: oh yeah and its lemon OIL not lemon juice!!!

haha

That doesn't matter as long you dry the strings out afterwards. Water can't do anything if it's dried off.

do most guitar shops sell beeswax or whatever it is to clean maple fretboards by the way?

Boiled linseed oil for cleaning, strings boiled in vinegar and bicarbonate (then placed in a deep freeze for a couple of hours), light machine oil (or 3-in-1) on the machineheads, and some Servisol in the pots.
A regular cleaning regime will pay off in the long run. Says the hypocrite who rarely bothers....

try some car detailing spray on the body, it gives the paint a nice smooth feel, removes light swirls and brings out the curves lol.
