My necks and strings NEVER gets gunky or dirty, my hands barely sweat anything.
I also often wash my hands with washing liquid before playing, not that I have to, but it's always good to have dry hands.
But every time I have a visitor they gunk up my strings and necks in five minutes
I have started asking people to wash their hands, but it doesnt fucking help since they still sweat and make a mess.
HOW DO I CLEAN ROASTED MAPLE NECKS?
The ones with hard finish aint a problem, I just wash em off with a moisted toilet paper.
And I have to change the goddamn strings.
But unfinished roasted maple? I dont wanna use water on those...
I'm thinking of getting a "guest guitar" because of this... They can gunk that one up as much as they want...
Zippo lighter fluid works great.
