I am very anal about my Carvin, but I have to be to keep the finish and the wood in the condition it needs to be. A natural tung oil finish has to be maintained every month with lemon oil and then every 6 months with tung oil to keep the wood from drying out. I change strings when I feel I need to but I re-oil every month with a 100% cotton cloth that leaves no dust. My Ibanez gets restrung when it needs it, and every now and then I just wipe it down with windex.

I'm obssesive, in a way, but I also think that guitars are like shoes...they need to be treated like crap now and again. They need to be worn in, so to speak smile.gif
