Okay, I've been using this kit for years on new guitars. I use it for general maintenance during every string change. The fretboard conditioner is not to clean the frets, it's to add a nice moisture to a dry board. It leaves it nice and soft and dark... just be sure to wipe it completely dry afterwards. Follow the directions. I use Lem Oil to clean the frets and board FIRST, then the conditioner. The metal cleaner is not for frets, it's for hardware, and it shines it up amazingly. Use it on the bridge, tailpiece, and tuners and you'll love how it makes dull hardware shine like new. Lastly, the cream polish. This isn't the best polish I've used, but nowhere near the worst either. You need 2 cloths, one to apply and one to buff/clean up. Works like a charm for shining things up smoothly. It does leave a slight residue that has to be buffed out with a clean cloth and makes the guitar body less slippery... but I like it that way. It's all preference. I particularly love the smell of the fretboard conditioner, and the dust brush comes in super handy for cleaning edges of frets, saddles, pegs, the nut slots, pickup cavities, and all of those other tricky spots. When used properly it's a great kit. People always comment on how all of my guitars always look brand new. If you're looking to buff out scratches, you may want to turn to something more heat/friction based. I've been playing guitar for about 20 years and I am using this kit on mostly newer nitro finishes. Even a Danelectro. Remember, the key here is lem oil first for cleaning (on the frets too), use 2 cloths for polishing, and do not use the metal cleaner on the frets, just the hardware... it's abrasive and will leave marks on the board if you get any on the wood. And of course, I would only use this kit on electrics.

I ordered this kit appy. I have several guitars that have tarnished bridges, which is why I bought this kit, mainly for the metal polish so I could remove all that ugly tarnish. Well guess what, it didn't take ANY tarnish off AT ALL. In fact, it just made it worse, now the tarnish is more smugged and eveident. I highly DO NOT recomend this very bad kit, its a huge waste of money. Unless you want to buy something that dosn't do what it says it does, then this is for you.

      Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue Guitar Restoration Kit:

      I've been using it for about 10 years now and all my Gibsons come back to life everytime that I use it. It's a great kit for basic home maintenance and treating the wood. I wish that it would bring more of the body conditioner, the other two are plenty for its use.

        Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue Guitar Restoration Kit:

        Gibson has a couple different cleaning and restoration kits, and this is by far the best bang for the buck! The Nitro polish works great, the metal cleaner takes corrosion and grime off almost immediately, and the fretboard conditioner keeps the fretboard looking new! And it comes with a couple polish cloths and a nylon brush for the chrome....Great products!!!

        Just what I was looking for!

        Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue Guitar Restoration Kit:

        I have a very expensive Gibson True Vintage SJ-200 acoustic guitar. It has a FRAGILE matte nitro finish. I am overly carefull with my guitars (my wife calls it obsessive), but if you look at the finish sideways, it will scratch. I used a leather strap without any metal or plastic hardware. It was a cheap strap, not super smooth. Anywhere that it made contact with the finish, it left scratches. Needless to say, I was sick over it. I called Gibson, and they recommended this restoration kit. I purchased it, not really believing that it would work. I only used the restorative finish cream and the two included cloths. Miracles! I had to work at it, but the ugly finish scratches are 95% gone. Oh yes, it also removed a huge pick scratch that someone else put in the finish. I don't know if it would work on all finishes, but if you have a Gibson matte nitro finish, look no further! This stuff saved my sanity (at least for the time being).

        Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue Guitar Restoration Kit:

        I was told this did wonders on guitar, turns out its a huge waste. The metal cleaner RUINS the metal on your guitar. Like it's too strong. The polish isn't that great. It leaves a bad finsh. The fretboard cleaner does a decent job, but leaves a bad smell and it gives a bad feel to the fretboard. Overall I'd go with the Dunlop 65 Cleaning Kit.

        Use it right!

        By TweedLover

        Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue Guitar Restoration Kit:

        Only use this if you know how to use it. The polish is meant to get scratches off high quality new and vintage Gibson guitars that have a very high quality finish. It will do nothing to other guitars, and it's not exactly a polish. This is what you need if you're playing a Gibson and want to get the scratches you put on with a pick or whatever off. It works, but you have to know how and when to use it.

        TLC For Your Guitar

        By Jack B. Nimble

        from Soft Pretzel, PA

        Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue Guitar Restoration Kit:

        The fretboard conditioner and metal cleaner are fantastic and work well. The polish cream however, leaves residue and is heard to completely remove with your standard polish cloth, you know the one that sheds little strands! You have to rub and rub causing more superficial scratches on the finish. No good.

        Worst guitar polish ever!!!

        By Ace Ventura

        from Nowhere.

        Comments about Gibson Vintage Reissue Guitar Restoration Kit:

        I used my top 3 polishing cloths to clean one of my guitars with this stuff, and it completely contaminated all of my cloths and left a waxy film on every one of my 8 guitars, a wax that hasn't come off after 2 years. In fact, two of these guitars were polished after the cloths had been washed for the first time. All of my guitars now have a waxy film on them that smears every time I touch them. This crap gets everytwhere and doesn't come off. DON'T BUY THIS GARBAGE!!!
