Hey guys, just a quick question. I have a 2012 Satin Cherry Mahoghany Les Paul Traditional that I took some Meguiers carnuba wax to awhile back to shine up the satin finish on the guitar. It did a great job and I have no complaints with the look that was produced, just a nice light sheen. However I noticed that the guitar is awfully easy to mark up, i.e I can take my fingernail and make an indentation into the wood. It just doesn't seem right that the wood should be that "soft"? So, after doing some research I have read that if you put wax on a guitar, which is not inherently bad, it doesn't allow the the finish on the guitar, in this case Nitro cellulose, to fully cure? Is there any merit to this? If so, is it safe for me to take Ronsonol Lighter Fuel (Contains Naptha, at least that is what the container I have says) do a real good rub down of the guitar to strip the wax off and then set the guitar in direct sunlight for awhile? This guitar is mainly just played in my home, but it kinda annoys me that this guitar isn't a bit more resilient to "impact" per say....I mean, it doesn't seem right that with fingernail pressure I can mar up the body of the guitar or even chip away at it. Overall shot of guitar. Pic showing how soft the wood seems Pic showing the fingernail indentation next to stopbar. Any help, guidance, or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks again.
