Final polish

After sanding and rubbing we probably all use a final polish fluid.

Mine was the stuff Martin sells. It works great and I sticked to it for years.
Now the musicstore didn't have it in stock, but they had an alternative: the Gibson pump polish. I gave it a try. and guess what: That works great too. Maybe even better. It really covers polishing scratches very well. So I think I'll stick to this one for now.

What polish do you use?

I completely agree Ray -- I've been using this stuff for several years. A little can costs over $20, but I've used it on about a dozen guitars, some multiple times, plus my wife's best furniture, and the can is only half gone. Great stuff!

Guess what! The Renaissance wax is sold over here just around the corner.
Bought me some and it turns out to be truely good stuff as you told me.
Smells like grandma's housecleaningday.

Next to Gibson's I would say it's a draw.
