The Creole guitar has been man’s faithful companion for many years. It is made of wood and is sometimes covered with enamel or lacquer. Its continuous use mainly leads to a lack of brightness and dust accumulation in the fingerboard area. We are offering you the best care that you should have while cleaning and maintaining your Creole guitar.
What do you need?
- Cotton clothes
- Rope lubricant
- lemon oil
- Brush or brush
- vacuum cleaner
How are you going to clean the creole guitar?
- Box: First, remove any traces of dust or dirt with the dry cloth. After completely cleaning, spray a little «Blem» on the other side of the clean cloth and then use circular movements to clean the entire surface of the cloth and the box until it glows again.
To remove dust that has accumulated in the box, it can be vacuumed inside through the mouth.
- The fretboard: You have to remove the strings to properly clean them. Use a clean, dry cloth to remove any dust that has accumulated inside. Apply some lemon oil to the ebony or rosewood fingerboards to remove grease and dirt. This also helps the wood to hydrate and not dry out. Leave on for a few minutes and remove with a dry cloth. The dirt that has accumulated on the sides of the frets can be removed by wrapping the pimple with a cloth dipped in lemon oil.
- The ropes: They are the essential part of good sound. If you use and touch them constantly, oil and dirt will build up on your fingers. To clean it, you need to wipe it dry so that it picks up everything. Make sure there is no lint between them. Then we apply the string lubricant with the cloth only to the first three (steel) strings.
- Finally, use the brush or brush to clean the parts of the tremolo, bridge, and other hard-to-reach areas.
