I haven't been playing my acoustic Pearl River in a looong time, and thought I'd pick it up again and give some of the acoustic lessons a try =)
So I went to the corner where it has been standing the last 5 months, and I couldn't help but notice the inch of dust on it tongue.gif

After I wiped that off, I thought I'd give it a wash, but I have no idea how to clean it.. Is there some kind of wipes I should buy, or simply use a wet cloth, as my mom adviced me to do? Couldn't that ruin the wood? I don't want to ruin the poor thing mellow.gif

I think damp wet cloth is a good way to go. But be sure to gently wipe of any excess humidity as soon as you go over it with the wet cloth. Wipe piece by piece and I think it should be ok.

I just used a damp cloth this time, but I think I'll drop by the local music shop to check out some of the products you've mentioned =)
