How to care for vintage uke
I am relatively new to vintage ukes & have no real idea on how to care for them. For instance, I was wiping off another uke with a microfiber cloth and thought "should I do this to my Martin?". So I tested a small area. It worked wonders- the finish looked brand new in the small test area. However, is removing the patina a negative thing in terms of value? I was using as much force as I would to clean my glasses (medium pressure).
What about the fretboard? Should I use wax or oil or anything? It looks so dry.
Anything else to consider?
