Anyone here uses Ernie Ball guitar polish? Does it really begin to smell like cockroaches after some time? Bought my first one a few years ago and it began to smell so. I thought it was just getting old. After it was finished, I bought another one and it's beginning to smell like cockroaches again.

Any recommendations for other guitar polish available locally? Where do we get them?

TIA.

Gumagamit ako ng Ernie ball guitar polish, yeah, pag tagal amoy cockroach talaga siya, akala ko dati yung gig bags ko ang amoy cockroach, kaya nilabhan ko, then the next week nung mag lilinis ulit ako amoy ipis na naman... Then naamoy ko yung cloth na libre sa guitar polish, amoy ipis talaga...

Dati gumagamit ako yung D'andrea guitar polish, hindi siya masyadong ganun ang amoy, medyo lang...

Thanks for the feedback!  :)

So safe to assume na most guitar polish may pagka amoy ipis?

Will check out D'Andrea.

Ako hesitant with mineral oil dahil magkakaroon ng greasy after feel. Might stain shirts pa. Will lemon oil make the body glossy na parang car na bagong wax?

Were you guys talking about this Ernie Ball polish? I have a few, actually. Hindi naman sya amoy ipis para sa akin. If any, I think it smells like sweet cherry.  :)

Pero meron akong Ernie Ball polish rin na hindi ko nagamit for a long time, baka nag expire, mejo maasim naman ang amoy.  :?

^Yup, yan nga... Amoy ipis siya... Di ko alam kung bakit...

EDIT:

Binuksan ko yung ernie ball guitar polish ko, kulay yogurt na strawberry flavor ang laman and inamoy ko ulit, amoy ipis talaga...  :lol:

EDIT 2:

Tanong ko na din dito, yung wipe out ba na wax okay gamitin pang linis sa guitar? nakita ko kasi sa PC park dati yun ang ginagamit... Salamat...

Then microfiber cloth lang. puede pa sa fretboard at hardware parts.

Mismo! Hindi naman sya amoy ipis when I bought and used my first bottle initially but that was years ago. So nung naubos, I bought a new one pero the 2nd time I used it, amoy ipis na sya. Not more than one month yung first use from the second.

Sweet cherry? I don't remember kung yan nga yung scent nung una. Where do you get your supply of it? I got both of my bottles from JB.

Yung sa bottles ko, looks like pang pr0n.  :lol:

Wag lang masyadong marami na paranv oily na. Sa Gibson na nitrocellulose paint ko pa nga ginagamit ang lemon oil. Tamang punas lang mawala ang pawis at dumi tapos konting buffing.

+1 get a passive DI box. I suggest getting RADIAL Stagebug. great DI for a friendly price. you're getting a radial at a price of a Samson :)

May nakasubok na ba ng TC Helicon Play Acoustic? Nakakaganda ba ng boses para sa sintunado na katulad ko?
