Taking care of your guitar or bass is more than just an indulgence: it's an important part of keeping that instrument in top shape for years to come! A well-maintained axe will last you for decades, as proven by the number of vintage instruments still around today from the '60s, '70s and '80s - some of them still looking like they just rolled out of the showroom. For preserving their finishes and that mint-condition look and feel, this selection of care kits for guitar and bass is the place to get started. You'll find a great selection of products here, all aimed at the singular goal of keeping your guitar or bass looking, feeling, and most importantly, sounding like new.
Picking out a care kit to meet your needs is, of course, going to depend on what those needs are. If you've just brought home your first instrument and you're gearing up with maintenance supplies from scratch, you'll probably want a kit that includes tools like cleaning cloths, brushes and other essentials. There are lots of those here, including best-selling standouts like the D'Andrea GMK1 Guitar Cleaner Maintenance Kit and the Musician's Gear Guitar Add-On Accessories Pack. Think of these sorts of kits as your one-stop-shop for protecting and restoring your instrument's function and finish.
If, on the other hand, you're an experienced player with some ownership time under your belt, you've probably collected all the basics already. In that case, maybe you're looking to replenish a stock of cleaning products you've run low on? That's easy enough with packages such as the Fender Custom Shop 4-Step Cleaning Kit, Gibson Luthier's Choice Guitar Care Triple Pak or Dunlop Formula 65 Guitar Polish Kit. Or, if you're in need of specialty products for specific care tasks, check out the likes of the D'Addario Planet Waves PW-LMN Gtr Care, Music Nomad String Fuel Re-fill or Fender Custom Shop Fingerboard Remedy.
Although a guitar's finish can be pretty tough, it takes the right formula to clean or treat it to factory condition without damaging the coat. And when it comes to metal parts like strings and frets, keeping corrosion at bay is something that takes some vigilance over the entire lifetime of the instrument. The good news is that it doesn't have to be a whole lot of attention. With a few minutes here and there, and the right care kits for your guitar or bass, it's easy to stay on top of basic maintenance - and those short sessions now will pay off in the long run, saving you from time-consuming and costly restoration projects years down the road.
