staining on nitro-cellouse finish

Recommended Posts

IMX nitro becomes vintage when stained and dulled a bit with use

 

It will absorb colour from clothing dyes etc

 

As well as perspiration and skin oils

 

So once the process starts, there is little point in attempting to turn the clock back IMO....

Like you, I like my guitars to look new. I never intend to sell them, but I like to know that if I need to, they will bring more if they are in better condition. The only way that I have been able to get rid of NC blushing from sweat is by repeated use of guitar polish, and by covering the area exposed to my arm with a cloth (when possible) or wearing a long sleeved shirt. This, and poor impact/scratch resistance, is why I dislike NC lacquers.

Hi,

 

I think the ebony finish seems to stain more than the others! I have a 2005 ES-335 ebony and have the same problem.

 

I also have two much older ES guitars in the cherry finish and the stain is not as noticeable as on the ebony finish guitar.

 

Either the black shows it more, or the finishes back in the day were better.

Step 1: Virtuoso Cleaner

Step 2: Virtuoso Polish

Step 3: Never loan out a guitar

 

 

"Yes" to all of the above.

 

When playing, I wear a long-sleeve cotton T-shirt (over another regular T-shirt so that the long sleeve shirt is always dry, and never has deodorant, skin cream, etc on it).
