The Right Way to Clean Your Guitar

Giving your guitar a deep clean is beneficial on many levels. On the surface, it does the obvious by maintaining your instrument, removing damaging oils and residues that can wear it down over time.

Proper cleaning will not only cause the guitar to feel and play much better, but it will look as fresh as the day you got it, which does wonders to temporarily satisfy your urge to buy a new guitar.

What's more important, in my opinion, is the respect for the instrument. Your guitar is your baby, and you should treat it with love and care.

While there are many theories on proper guitar maintenance out there, there are also many WRONG theories. In this video I'll let you know the way I clean my guitars and pitfalls you should avoid.
