The back of my R9's neck can get gritty/sticky a bit and I heard that polishing it will get rid of that. I had cleaned it and used some polish, but it always came back and still had that soft, waxy feel to it. Well I got me some Gibson Luthier's Choice Hi-Gloss Polish in a bundle on sale, so I thought I'd give'r a shot. WOW! It removed all the "gunk" and brought it to a nice, smooth, hard shine. Two weeks on and no grit or stickiness. But if it ever does, it's getting another buff with the stuff. Also, the VOS top was quite dull and had a waxy buildup feel to it. Grippy. I didn't want a high-gloss finish, so I took a chance and gave it and the back a light polishing with it. It ended up a dull glossy, if that makes sense. Looks beautiful. Shiny, but not too shiny. Now the flame pops more and the carve really stands out in the light. Never really even noticed it before. It's now near perfect. Smooth to the touch with no waxiness, and yet still "dull" enough that it looks VOS old and used. It ain't getting polished any further. I think from the smell the polish has some type of cleaner in it as well. Has a little mineral spirits kinda whiff to it. Works a treat. Who here has polished up their VOS finish? Did you polish it up slightly, or go full tilt to a gloss shine? What do you use to keep the VOS finish, or to get rid of it if that's the case?
