Cleaning the Wing

posted in: Help & Support | 0

All Wing Basses are finished with Tung Oil. To properly care for your instrument, we recommend a good cleaning or conditioning every so often.

Quick Clean

You can do a “quick clean” moistening / dampening a clean sponge or soft cloth. Just wipe the surface to remove dirt and grime. In most cases, this is all that needs to be done to a tung oil finish to keep it clean. You should wipe the finish regularly to keep dirt and grime from building up on the wood surface.

Intense Cleaning

Mix together 1 cup boiled linseed oil, 1/4-cup of white vinegar and 1 cup of turpentine. Dip a clean, soft cloth into the cleaning solution and apply the cleaner to the tung oil finish. Let the solution stand on the surface for several minutes to loosen dirt and grime. Wipe off the excess solution with a second cloth. Do not allow the solution to remain on the surface for a long time as it will become sticky and attract dust.
