Does an open-pore finish provide enough protection for a guitar?

In contrast to the high-gloss finish, the pores of the wood are not filled during painting, so they only appear open. But the applied 3 coats of lacquer definitely offer adequate protection.

How do I maintain open pore / matt lacquered guitars / ukuleles?

You can clean the surface with a sightly moistened cloth and dry afterwards. Please never use commercially available cleaning agents or polishes, and avoid intense rubbing: matt varnish becomes unattractively shiny!

How do I care for gloss lacquered guitars / ukuleles?

You can clean the surface with a microfiber cloth and commercially available, solvent-free cleaning agents.

How can I maintain the fingerboard of my guitar / ukulele?

The fingerboard should be treated about once a year with an acid- and solvent-free fingerboard oil.
