Fender Guitar Polish
Advantages: Leaves guitars clean and smear free
Disadvantages: Undecided if it's better than a general purpose polsih
There are those among us who spend more time polishing our guitars than actually playing them - and although it's noble to want to keep one's instrument smear free, I'm personally more of a player than a wiper. That said, if you fall into the former category of cleaners, there are a number of sprays on the market which can make the job a little easier - one such product is Fender's Guitar Polish.
Having already announced that I don't really clean my guitars that often, you may be wondering what i'm doing with guitar polish in my possession - well to tell the truth I didn't pay for the product, instead I received a bottle free with a guitar case that I purchased from a music shop. What I can say is that i've given the spray a thorough test, and am ready to report my findings back to you.

It should be pointed out that from amazon, Fender Guitar Polish comes as part of a three bottle set costing £4.99 - although as this review is for the spray alone, it is this which i'll focus my attention. I have used the spray on both my electric and my acoustic guitars, both of which have been left sparkling.
Using the Polish

The product arrives in a black spray topped bottle with 4oz of liquid inside - it's the same type of bottle that the catnip spray from Pets at Home comes in, so the furry one gets rather expectant when it's guitar cleaning time. In terms of its use, I find that it's best to give a couple of pumps of the spray onto a soft (lint free) cloth, rather than onto the guitar itself. After a short rubbing session, the spray gets rid of any greasy marks on the surface of the guitar(s) and the instrument is left smear-free. Aroma-wise, the polish does have a slight smell, but it's pretty much non-descript, and certainly not perfumed.

So what can I say about Fender Guitar Polish other than "it works" - well, not much really; and would it really be that much better than a Mr Sheen general purpose type cleaner? possibly not.
Summary: A good guitar cleaner
