Clean The Guitar
There are two steps in cleaning the guitar. In this part, I will clarify these steps.
· Step 1
In this step, you have to place the guitar neck on a pad in order to prevent the changes in the sound of the strings. You know that if we put the guitar stand or lay down in wrong postures, the sounds will be changed a lot. Therefore, there should have a pad to protect the guitar neck as well as limit the changes in the string sound.
Then, you will need a towel and fold it into half so that the width of the towel can cover the width of the guitar neck. After that we only have to move the towel on the neck of the guitar. When you take this step, please remember that you should not touch the strings in order to keep the strings stable.
· Step 2
In this step, you will have to provide more dedicated oil for the guitar. This oil is used to prevent rust condition. The oil WD40 is suitable for cleaning the guitar. We will spray some oil on the guitar strings.
It is true that when we play, our hands touch the guitar strings and the sweat of our fingers will be absorbed by the strings. Besides, there is a lot of dust and spider network that can stay on the strings. Therefore, we will need to use this oil in order to remove all the dirt out of the guitar strings.
Store The Guitar
After cleaning, we had better place the guitar in a dry and spacy corner so that the strings are dried. Then, we should put the instrument into a special bag which is attached when we buy the guitar.
