JEM 7V WH, needs cleaning

I have a 94 WH, looking a bit yellow these days, although the headstock is still a nice white colour, any suggestions for cleaning the body paintwork guys?

Re: JEM 7V WH, needs cleaning

Mostly we see nitro finnishes get 'yellow' over time. Nitro finishes were common on old guitars and are still used on many higher-end guitars -but the cost is tremendous compared to a poly finish.

Jems have a 'poly' finish which normally doesn't yellow. Try one of the Fender cleanser products or Dunlop-65 to clean it. Smoke can discolor poly finishes over time too.

Let us know what happens- I'm curious if it's dirty or actually discolored.

I do prefer "old white" 7VWs than bright clean "bridal white" ones.

just tried the Dunlop 65 on the body, not really made a difference, I suppose the colouration is more yellowed these day, I suppose a respray wouldnt go a miss at some time, lol
