Looking after a Baily Bootlegger
The finish on my first acoustic build is matt, as per the instructions. It's nothing like the shine on my Collings but I really like it. However, I wonder whether I should be thinking about looking after the wood, or maybe this is not necessary.
Any advice on this topic would be appreciated.
For a Matt finish all you should need is a damp cloth to clean it - The fretboard should be treated with Lemon Oil (or similar) every once in a while or if it is looking a bit dry.
A gloss finish is a lot more work and a whole nuther level of difficulty - maybe next time?
Measure twice, cut once...
