Wiping the guitar?

Recommended Posts

I've had my guitar for about a month now, and I really love it.

 

But the neck starts to feel a bit tacky, and I suppose it is due to the flood of sweat my hands will excrete during play. I've tried to wipe the neck with kitchen roll after use; sometimes starting with a slightly damp cloth - It just doesn't seem to help that much. Is there a better method?

 

Any help will be appreciated.

Chamois cloth works pretty well too, just make sure it's real lambskin, the fake stuff will scratch your guitar. That and good old breath has always worked for me, unless it really needs to be cleaned, then I use the aforementioned chamois, and Harris' "The Boston Creme" polish, and have yet to be disappointed.

Actually' date=' I meant the back of the neck and not the fretboard - I thought neck referred to the back.

 

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear enough.[/quote']

 

You were clear, it was my misinterpretation....... Sometimes the neck and fretboard get fused together.

 

But the micro-fiber cloth works great on the fretboard and neck
