Cleaning a JS 10th
The biggest concern should be for the finish, and trying to not make it any worse than it already is. *The best thing I've found, and I'm sure Rich will agree, is a sunglass lens cloth from Sunglass Hut or any optician's shop. *They're usually made of a high-quality, ultra-soft, lint-free cloth which won't scratch the finish too badly. *As a polish, you need something completely non-abrasive. *The clear, pump-spray Dunlop polish seems to work pretty well for me. *But, when in doubt, use spit. *It works!
As for cleaning the trem, fingerboard, etc- Rich's primer is very thorough. *Ya just need to pay extra attention to the finish, since it is delicate and prone to easy scratching and scuffing.
