Does everything juice
15.09.2016
I did not think that a wax could have any plus points worth doing a review for but I was wrong. I've used many cleaners over the years, anything from specialist guitar products to household goods rummaged from under the sink. Wax has been guitar wax to furniture wax to car wax, what can be different? A lot.

I tried this on three Strat types with very different finishes and the results were very good on them all.

Harley Benton ST-62.
This one is the vintage white with maple board & heavily lacquered neck. The finish is thick and kinda like the guitars been dunked in wet plastic. Nice, but I dont think it will ever naturally relic. The body came up clean with a luster that sort of aged it a little. no massive change but just enough "something" to make it work. I did the white pick guard too, that seemed to give a little more depth to the flat white. The main improvement for me on this one was the neck. I lean towards satin necks due to the lacquered ones sometimes feeling sticky. That is now gone. The neck is now slick but not greasy. The 62 has always been my reach for guitar anyway, but playability has improved dramatically. Worth the price for this alone.

Squier Hot Rails Deluxe.
A thinner finish on this one in black with a parchment guard. I was never impressed with the finish, it was black, meh. Just black. Now its piano black. Its a lot deeper than before and feels smoother than a mouses ear. I did the hardware and rosewood fretboard on this one. The chrome came up bright and the grain on the board got a good glossy finish with highlighted grain. I did the strings too. To me Its on par with fast fret.

97 Fender American Standard.
Usual Fender finish in sunburst. This really brought out the true value of Ax Wax. The paint looked new. Blacks were deep and the orange to yellow seemed to blend more smoothly. The neck has been linseed oiled so I just gave it a light rub along with the strings. The feeling now is liquid.

To summarize would I buy again, if I need to yes, but maybe by the time I need more I'll be in a care home that does not allow guitars. You need the smallest amount on a microfiber cloth. A drop that spreads to the size of a pea will do the front, fully. Two drops cover a guitar. Its not greasy, dries well, buffs up easily and leaves a smooth deep coating. i like it, this is now my wax of choice.

Pros:
Not greasy & buffs out well with minimal effort.
Can be used on every part of the guitar.
Great results on all finishes (That Ive tried)
A little goes a very long way.
Odour free, i think.

Cons:
Not a lot. Maybe if i had to choose it would be that when full the bottle spits a bit when you click the top open. A minor, but put the cloth over it when you press it. Dont waste this stuff.

The only other con is that now I want to wax my guitars.

Great all-purpose product
JxHx the Undeceived, 09.11.2020
I wish I'd discovered this before buying lemon oil, string cleaners, finish polisher and so on. Just apply it everywhere on the instrument and it will be protected from rust and properly conditioned and lubed up.
All my guitars and basses look and play better after a few drops and a lot of rubbing.
It even has a faint nice scent.
Be careful! Don't use too much! Just a couple of drops at a time will do.

It does what it does, and it does it well.
It doesn't seem to stay on for a long time though, which isn't a big deal. I have time to sit there and rub it in.

Awesome and versatile
Kacek, 15.09.2020
I bought this product after reading all the praising reviews.
It is really efficient and a very small amount is enough to cover all of your guitar. It will bring even the most matted surfaces to life.
The only drawback, which has been mentioned by other reviewers, is the container it is in. It is practically impossible to avoid spilling this liquid around when you only want a few drops.
Although seemingly unimportant, it makes it a bit too fussy to use and when I want to clean all my guitars I reach rather for other product with less problematic application.
If the container were better designed i would give Dr. Ducks Ax Wax 5 stars, now it's only 3.
