~Is this the Mr Sheen of the guitar polishing world?~
I feel that the use of a product such as thePeavey Guitar Polish Formula works well when used to help combat the build up of grime from every day handling and in the same way that you would wax your car, polish the furniture and clean your computer keyboard to keep them all mark and smudge free, incorporating a regular regime that involves a little TLC for your guitar will make for a longer lasting finish and a smart looking instrument that makes you want to pick it up and play it. When wanting to review the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula here on Dooyoo it wasn't listed so a product suggestion was made in order to allow me to share my thoughts about this easy to use and reasonably priced guitar care product.
~Easy peasy polishing with Peavey~
When using the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula you can if wanted use it with the Peavey Guitar Polishing Cloth from the same range which makes a nice soft polishing cloth that leaves no marks or smears behind when used correctly. I had the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula and the Peavey Polishing Cloth as part of a guitar care mini kit some time ago and found that the items within the kit worked well together and also worked out less expensive to buy together than when on their own. The Peavey Guitar Polish Formula can be bought as a stand alone item if wanted, or as part of the cleaning set mentioned and is available both from online stores and in high street guitar stores and music shops.
The Peavey Guitar Polish Formula is an easy to use product which comes in a slim and compact plastic bottle with its own simple to use spray applicator. The Peavey Guitar Polish Formula is quick and easy to use and all that is needed is a light misting with the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula on to the main body of your guitar which will allow you to remove light marks including finger prints, grease spots, dust etc that have been left on the body of the guitar. The best way to ensure a good result when using the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula is to make sure you mist the spray lightly yet evenly onto the areas that need attention. Once that Peavey Guitar Polish Formula has been applied all you need to do is use a soft cloth such as the Peavey Cloth mentioned to polish off the residue until the surface of the guitar is left dry and grime free.
To maximize the polished effect that can be achieved with the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula you can follow up with a light buffing afterwards with a fluffy and soft micro fibre cloth such as the Peavey Guitar Micro Fibre Cloth. I find that using this combination can leave your guitar looking glossy and well looked after with very little effort and it means that keeping your guitar dust and smear free takes next to no time if done on a regular basis. Although I do did find when I used this the over all effect was good and making the product worth using, I do slightly prefer the Meguiars guitar care products just a little more as I find they work a little harder with slightly less effort to get a good all round smear free shine.
~Why should I bother with this?~
As your hands will come into contact with your guitar when using it the combination of oils on your skin and general dirt and grime can have an impact on the look and finish of your guitar. This may ultimately result in a loss of the fresh and new shiny lustre that new guitars have when their lacquer is fresh and untouched so my feeling is that to minimize the effects of this I like to keep my instruments grime free by giving them a quick clean very now and then. As any contact you have with your instrument does leave a few finger prints and marks, products such as the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula can help to sort them out in a quick pain free way.
One thing that is worth mentioning is that even though the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula is a good product it should only be used with a nice soft polishing cloth used only for your guitar and the polish. I feel that using a cheaper more abrasive cloth may lead to swirl marks and scratches so I tend to only use specialist cloths as as I know I am able to use them with no fear of such problems arising. Unsightly swirl marks are more of a problem on darker lacquered finishes as they can be seen more easily on these darker colours in bright light conditions. By using the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula along with a soft clean cloth you should find that swirls and scratches don't appear at all.
~Price and rating~
In use the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula has been an easy to apply and buff off product that works well to give a freshly shined and polished look that takes care of grime and grease with in a short time frame. I do slightly favour the Meguiars guitar care products that come under the Fender guitar care banner, as I feel they do have a slight edge over this range although they are more expensive to buy and so are a slightly bigger investment. As a basic cleaning and polishing formula the Peavey Guitar Polish Formula works as well as any other similar product except the Meguiars range mentioned here, although with the cost of the Peavey Guitar Polishing Formula being cheaper at around £6 per bottle it may suit some situations more than others. Best value is with the Peavey guitar care kits which have all you need including the cloth, polish and string cleaner in them and these sell for close to £7.99 per set making them a good buy. Over all I feel that the results possible with the product are good so I want to give the product a 4 star rating.
Summary: A useful polish that works well
