How to clean the guitar for a greater look + sound
It’s important to have a clean guitar. A guitar that is unclean will not only NOT sound good, but it will look bad, and it’s not inspiring or useful to play on.
For example, you may clean the body of the guitar, but forget the strings. After a while, dirt and muck will start attaching to the strings and underneath strings and on the fret board as well. You can see this by taking a white cloth and pulling it gently underneath. Look at all the dirt!

Learn How To Buy An Acoustic Guitar With Confidence
Purchasing an acoustic guitar can be a challenging process. Whether you are considering purchasing a guitar for the first time, for the 10th time, or as a gift for another, understanding the entire construction process and craftsmanship of an acoustic guitar is essential in making the best investment.
