    Should't It Be Used

    The Gibson Restoration Kit arrived in fine shape from Sweetwater. But, shouldn't it be used rather than some other third party polish or cleaner? I mean I bought a Gibson Guitar, and certainly it says right on the package - made for nitrocellulose finishes. I only saw perhaps one other one who made that claim the rest of the others saying they were made for all finishes. Well, believe what you want to, but I would expect even if the Gibson Product is not as good as what some other third party manufacturers claim about their own product, it is made by Gibson and may be better for a Gibson Guitar. I also see other claiming you can use this or that for polish or cleaner, well, I prefer to use a Gibson Product such as this for my Gibson Guitar. No, I am not restoring a guitar, I am keeping a guitar from having to be restored probably. And if a dealer is going to sell a Gibson Guitar, should it not also have the option to use a Gibson Product on a Gibson Guitar? Some other places don't and can not even order it. Sweetwater had it, and that makes a day for sure.

    I contacted Sean Geyer at Sweetwater for his recommendation of a product to use on my Gibson SG anniversary edition bass. The bass has a satin, chocolate finish, that this product does a great job cleaning without leaving an oily film. The kit came with metal polish and fretboard cleaner that I haven't used yet. Love the Gibson polishing clothes too. Thanks Sweetwater.

    Used this kit on a '81 LP Standard that had been neglected for a while. The fretboard conditioner works great. The metal cleaner was fantastic for restoring the hardware from corrosion. Maybe I was using the restoration cream incorrectly but I used it as a cleaning polish. It left the finish really cloudy and was hard to work with. It did, however, work pretty well for cleaning most of the old oil grime and build-up that had hardened onto the body. Perhaps this is all this cream is supposed to do? It's nice little kit to have but maybe consider getting the pump polish or another type of cleaning polish along with it if your looking for a great shine.
