Thanks for jogging my memory. Man, yours looks positively mint! I've always said that guitar playing is cheaper than therapy! Of course, I was speaking of "therapy" in the sense of mental well-being, "therapeutic," as it were. But I can easily believe in its physical therapeutic value. I can't remember what I used before Meguiar's. Probably something like pledge. Because of the "multi-lacquered, hand rubbed gloss" finish, I didn't worry too much about what I used. Nine years ago I bought my first Logan Custom tele, which has no grain filler and a nitrocellulose lacquer. Bob Logan recommended Meguiar's, so I've been using it ever since. And I figured if it's safe for a thin nitro finish, it'll be fine for my other guitars. So I've been using Meguiar's on my acoustics, including my Hohner, for that long. No problems.
