BruSH up on Main­te­nance

“Get a new or very clean small paint­brush for reach­ing into all those nooks and cran­nies on a gui­tar that a duster won’t reach,” rec­om­mends Gary Moore tech Gra­ham Lil­ley. “Un­der bridges and tail­pieces, be­tween strings on a head­stock, be­tween bridge sad­dles and all sorts of other places. Clean gear tends to keep work­ing, as op­posed to dirty crud-cov­ered equip­ment, which some­times might be what’s hold­ing an item to­gether. If you look after your gear, then not only will it keep on work­ing, maybe it will keep some of its re­sale value if you need to sell it or when it’s time to up­grade it. Cot­ton buds (or­ganic, non-plastic stem type) will also help reach any cor­ners and tease the muck out.”
