    Cleaning A Bass

    Hi, my Infinity Zebrano has finally arrived from Portugal. It is in good overall condition, but I would like to clean it before doing the usual waxing / lemon oil ceremony. What is your experience and recommendations for that kind of cleaning for body / neck / frets? Thank you.

    Cleaning an amp

    Is there anything i can do to clean out an old amp? I have heard of flushing pots and blowing the inside out with compressed air but am not sure if its worth it. I just bought a new head on ebay and unless i am severely disappointed i will be selling my old Carvin R1000. I've had it for years...

    Hi, I am wondering what the best process to take care of the wenge fretboard on my Streamer Stage I is? The supplied manual states using 'special oil' but doesn't give any more hints than that. I usually use lemon oil on my rosewoods but have never owned wenge before now. Any tips? All the...

    Cleaning strings with electronics cleaner?

    I just waxed and oiled my 5-stringer corvette and the strings are off...I'm tempted to blast 'em with some Radio Shack Precision Electronics cleaner. My instinct is telling me it would removed any "gunk" that's built up on the strings (they're about 5-6 weeks old)...what do you folks think?

    Anyone tried sunflower oil for fretboard cleaning?

    Today I've checked all drugstores around and found no lemon oil there. So I tried cleaning the fretboard with refined sunflower oil (there always is some in kitchen). Pretty the same effect but cheaper and no nice odour.

    Cleaning a natural oil finish?

    A local dealer has a Katana NT in natural oil for sale pretty cheap, but it's been on the floor a while, and it's all smudged up. It also has a broken nut, but it's "new", i.e., never sold. I could probably get the price down under $1500, but I'd like to be able to get it clean. Is that possible?

    Methylated Spirits (Cleaning strings)

    Has anyone tried it? I've heard of boiling strings and that it doesn't really helped. I researched and found this site that told me another way which is basically making a container out of PVC pipe, filling it with Methylated spirits and letting the strings soak for 12-24 hours. I just...
