It made my 3 years old guitar look like it was bought the very moment I removed the wax from it. It's amazing the finish it gives the guitar, very nice and shiny. Also, when I used the fretboard cleaner, I was shocked about the amount of rust and dead skin I removed from there. It's perfect to use after changing strings.
I swear I don't work for Dunlop, although this might sound like it! First I used this kit on my new Epi Les Paul Standard PT PRO. Made a huge difference in the way the fingerboard felt and played, even on a new guitar with nothing really wrong with it. So much smoother with properly polished frets and oiled fingerboard. Whenever I get a new guitar, I'm doing this first thing every time. They don't do this correctly at the high-output factories, which is fine with me. I'll take my time, do it right. Then I rejuvenated a run-down, yard-sale special, Ibanez RG series using this kit and it's just unreal. The fingerboard and fret cleaning and polishing products/process is worth the price of admission on it's own. After 3 hours of detailed cleaning and polishing, that Ibanez looks and plays fantastic. Took out all the fine scratches in the clear coat too. All you have to supply is the elbow grease, it does take some effort but they give you the right tools for the job. The rest of the kit works well cleaning and polishing your guitar body to a car-show luster, far beyond what you might do with a can of Pledge. It is now one beautiful Ibanez, a screamer with "fingerboard and frets restoration by Jim Dunlop" wink, wink. If you're interested in restoring that old dust-catcher in the closet, this is a great way to get started. Not just making it pretty, making it play MUCH better.
This kit is fantastic. Not only does it deeply clean every aspect of your guitar (string cleaner will work on metal hardware as well) it leaves it nice and shiny. I somewhat prefer the lemon oil Dunlop has for my fingerboard, but the fingerboard cleaner here is the best for deep cleansing. I use all three, with the lemon oil last. I also wish the bottles were a bit bigger, especially the string cleaner. I go through a bottle in about a month and a half. Other than that, especially for the decent price, this kit is unbeatable.
All of the cleaning fluids are excellent. The instructions are okay, but not as good as they make it sound. The "instruction manual" is nothing but the directions from the bottles reprinted on a piece of paper word for word. :P Biggest pro: convenience, quality of cleaners. Biggest con: only includes 2 cloths, which is just not enough.
Worth the price alone for the fret cleaner and finger board conditioner. Came with a useful and reusable fret cleaning micro cloth (as well as body buffing cloths) that took all the grime and dirt off of the frets. Left everything feeling smoother than ever. String bending is effortless now. Didn't realize how poor of shape the frets were in before using this. I'm switching from .10's to .11's because the strings feel very slinky now. Also the guitar body cleaner and wax worked super, haven't used the string cleaner yet though I'm sure it is fine. Only con: the nozzle spray tops tend to leak out liquid before producing the fine mist that is required, so things can get a little sloppy. Other than that this kit worked much better than I had expected go buy and use this before throwing your guitar into the "useless junk" pile and rushing out to buy a new one. Be warned the fret and finger board cleaners are not to be used with MAPLE finger boards.
This kit is fantastic. I didn't realize how dirty my fretbaord actually was until I used this kit to clean it. Brought back the rosewood to a better than factory finish. Includes a fret polishing cloth that brings them back to a brilliant shine. I do recommend taping of the frets so you don't accidentally scuff the wood (although the deep conditioner would probably take care of that). The polish/cleaner did an excellent job of taking care of fingerprints and smudges, and the cream of caranuba gave my guitar an almost mirror like finish. The best all-in-one kit on the market.
I own a PRS SE Custom 24 and a BC Rich Bronze Mockingbird, this kit keeps my guitars lookin good for my weekly gigs. The only problem i have is the fretboard cleaner it dehydrates the fretboard. So I'll probably use lemon oil and the conditioner together instead. Otherwise everything else is great. I recommend using the string cleaner once a week and after every time you change strings, it really lubes the strings up and cleans them very well after you wipe them off. Overall, great product.
My friend got me this kit for my birthday. It works really good. I didn't use it until today, but once I got it on my guitar, IT WAS AMAZING. Once you put on that Cream of Carnuaba Wax, it works really great. Its really great if you wanna keep fingerprints off & gives a nice shine. The string conditioner gives a smooth clean on the strings too! Definately recommend this.
Well i have a pretty expensive paul reed smith custom 24 and surprisingly it scratches all the time! Which gets me pretty mad, but anyway i apply the finish cleaners and the scratches basically disappear! Of course you can still see them when you turn your guitar a certain way but it works so well! And it also seems like it keeps working because the next day i literally wont see any scratches where they were before. I dont know that if this is my guitar's finish doing something or if its this stuff but something is working to get the scratches out! Bottom line - get this you wont regret it!
This is a complete care kit in one box. Includes polishing cloth and all other cleaners and polishers to maintain your instrument.
