I have trusted this product enough for years to use on my acoustic instruments as well as on other folks instruments when I'm restringing mandolins, guitars or banjos for friends and I (they) have been very impressed with the finished cleaning results. For such a small bottle and for no more than I need to apply when cleaning "A little bit goes a long way" so I've held on to using one bottle for a couple of years now. I had first heard of and had purchased this product from a local music store. Now, my future purchases of this will now be through Musician's Friend. It has NEVER left any feel of residue (sticky or oily) on any of my instruments after it has been applied. It really does what it made to do! I highly recommend this product to everybody! I also recommend that you purchase or use an "untreated" polishing cloth or a piece of a clean, white Cotton T shirt (that you no longer wear) when using this product. * I've never applied this to any strings for cleaning so I can't say if I'd recommend using this product on them or not. Perhaps other reviewers could vouch for this application.

This stuff does give a very nice shine. I wrote to the Dunlop company to ask if it contains silicon and they wrote back saying: "Yes, Formula 65 does contain a very small amount of silicone. The overall amount is less than 2% of the overall content. If you are going to use the product, please be advised of the following: If there are any cracks, chips and or checking do not spray the polish directly on the finish. Doing so will cause the polish to get under the finish."This info should of been on the label. I don't want to use it now. I've tried to finish guitars that have been polished with silicon in the wax and it's too much trouble to get the paint to stick.

      About Me Experienced

      Comments about Dunlop Formula 65 Polish and Cleaner:

      This product may as well be Martin guitar polish. As far as I can tell, it's identical. Even though you spray in onto a cloth, and not the instrument, it seperates and moves all over the surface making it somewhat difficult to remove. It gets the job done, but like Martin's stuff, you kind of have to fight it because it tends to smear. You have to go over it a few times with a dry cloth to finish.

      Comments about Dunlop Formula 65 Polish and Cleaner:

      This is the only cleaning product I use on all of my guitars. It keeps my guitars clean and shiny, almost to the point where I feel guilty messing up the shine on my new-looking guitar. Only problem that I've ever had is that I keep losing the cap.

      Cleans and polishes in one step. Can use it on the fretboard, headstock, body... any part that is wood! Easy to use and looks great. If you don't own anything else that comes in a bottle for your instrument, own this!

                I use this polish on all of my non lacquered finished guitars. It leaves them looking brand new without
                leaving a greasy or an oily residue on the finish of the guitar !!!

                          I have been using the 65-polish sense the days when you ordered from a MF catalog and when I ran out I tried two different brands that the music store guy suggested and Damm! what a mistake. The other brands worked ok to shine but the next day the polish got sticky ( I'm in Wisconsin, high humidity this time of year) and I hate having that stick under your forearm and on your neck so your thumb grips, 65 is like glass

                            Your basic polish. all my guitars are newer with no surface damage so I do not worry about the silicon thing. Shine is brilliant and resistant to smudge.
                            Works for me.

                            I have just purchased a bottle of this stuff. I didn't know what to expect from it because I had never even heard any one talking about it. I just got a vintage gibson and it had not been cleaned in a while....I rubbed it on and it had it looking new. I could even see my own reflection in the finish. I would highly recommend this product! Great Value!

                            Overall I give it a 1. I can't justify anything higher and I'd go into the negatives if I could. I bought this product to "clean" my guitars up and as it puts it... "restores it to the original luster" and it didn't deliver.
                            It smelled nice, but thats about all I can say. It was virtually incapable of even removing prints that I just put there.
                            Again, it was a disappointment.

                              For the money, It would be hard to find a better product. No strange smells. I use it in summer months a lot when I play with short sleeve shirts, saves on my guitars finish. Buy it, it's fine.
