Hi all,

Purchased a D-03 awhile back and the soundboard is getting a bit gunked up from my right arm (right handed).  Any ideas on best options for cleaning satin tops?

Thanks for any info.

Naphtha is probably the best cleaner for satin finishes, lighter fluid like Ronsonal is fine. Cleaners like Virtuoso and others will make the satin finish semi-gloss.

For the top, a very lightly damp cloth.  If it's really bad, naphtha like previously suggested.

I'm a minimalist when it comes to applying chemicals to my guitars.

Per Matthew Larrivee - "For satin finish I would use lighter fluid like Ronsonol. Put it on a micro fiber cloth then gently wipe down". - in this thread HERE

The key is to wipe it down with a soft cloth after every playing session so it doesn't get to the point of needing additional treatment.  Easy to say, I know.  I agree with using lighter fluid should it need additional cleaning.
