    I'm about to conduct my first ever cleaning on my Wolfgang standard.

    Sometime last year I had downloaded some instructions on how to clean it. There was a mention of a product called ENDUST (made by Kiwi Brands Inc.) which is supposedly an alcohol based, mild cleaning formula.

    Has anyone out there ever used this product to clean their Wolfgang neck? How did it turn out? Where is this product available?

    Any advice regarding the use of this product will be most appreciated.

    Thanks!

    When I e-mailed Peavey, they recommended using lemon oil. It worked great for me. You can pick it up at Meijer and places like that. Never heard of using that other stuff to clean the neck.

    The neck on my friggin' Wolfgang looks like Eddie's main 5150 Kramer or Clapton's original "Blackie" strat.

    Girl, Endust is a furniture polish, and should not be used on an unfinished guitar neck. I used to use lemon oil a long time ago, but found that a very fine scotch brite pad,grade 0000, wet with casey's gunstock oil work really well, and leaves no build up whatsoever. It soaks into the wood, and makes it feel like a factory finish. Just wipe down the neck really well after you're done.
    I stopped using lemon oil because I found that over time it builds up in the wood and becomes sticky, no matter how much you wipe it off.

    Well according to the instructions I downloaded, Endust does not leave a residue and is supposedly safe on guitar necks.

    Thanks for the advice though. Where is lemon oil available? Should this be applied using a cloth or iron wool?

    I use Endust(the no wax kind) to clean the neck and then I give it a light swipe of lemon oil. It works fine for me. I only clean the neck on my Standard. I let the Special look like a well played guitar.

    Endust will not harm your neck. It actually does the trick quite well. I have been using it for years, and have never had a problem with buildup. Just spray it on a rag, not on the neck.

    I use Peavey brand lemon oil and it works excellent and is what they recommend. You can order it direct from them or if you google it find someone online who sells it. About $6 or so, if I remember correctly. Take a look on the Peavey amp forum for posts on how to clean your Wolfgang neck, including doing some sanding to return it to it's original unfinished condition.
