When you put as much time and effort into something as you do into your guitar, bass, mandolin, uke or any other fretted instrument for that matter, taking great care of it is definitely a priority. That's not to say you need to go building a climate-controlled extension on your house, of course, but a good polishing from time to time is a wise habit to get into - and treating your strings and hardware will help keep them in tune and easy to play. With the variety of fretted instrument care and cleaning supplies available in this section, you'll have everything you need to keep your treasured instrument looking its best, or even to restore a worn vintage find to showroom shape.
To build out your collection of care supplies, products made for your instrument's finishes and woods are as good a place as any to start. You can go for something targeted if you have a specific goal, such as the Gibson Vintage Reissue Guitar Restoration Kit to breathe new life into an aging instrument or Music Nomad Fretboard F-ONE Oil to get your fretboard back into like-new condition. Or, if you're simply looking for the easiest option for end-to-end instrument care, check out the Dunlop System 65 Guitar Maintenance Kit or any of the other complete sets in this section.
Once you've got the instrument body's maintenance needs sorted out, move on to the strings and hardware. Fingerease Guitar String Lubricant, for example, is a top-rated choice that protects your strings and makes them a little kinder to your fingers and picks. There are also some niche products that can handle those little specialty jobs, like the Big Bends Lil Luber Ultra Nut Sauce Applicator for stabilizing your tuning, putting an end to pitch drift and helping to avoid string breakage.
It doesn't matter whether you're looking to shine up the finish on your guitar, clean the strings on your bass or restore the fretboard on a ukulele - whenever it comes to cleaning and care of your fretted instruments, the products and kits in this section are ready to help you out.
