Topic: Using Carnauba (Car) Wax To Polish.......
....... your guitar? Have you ever done it? Is there a "trick" to doing it correctly?
A couple of years ago, I had my Rogue Beatle Bass changed from round to flat wound strings and, as part of the service, the luthier polished the finish with carnauba wax (I knew right away it was for cars because of the picture on the container and from the way my pulse began to race as I watched him squirt the stuff on my "baby".
"You, uh.....you uh, uh...... er.... um"
Finally he looked up, winked and said, "Relax, Bill. I know I'm using car wax."
Which I guess is luthier-speak for, "I know what I'm doing, so why don't you just go look at all the pretty guitars and drums, my friend and let me do what you're paying me for?"
So that's what I did and because I did, I missed some of the more salient points of polishing a guitar with carnauba wax.
Can anyone help me with this? Maybe some of y'all might use it on your pate? I just really don't want to mess up my pretty bass.
