Hey guys!!

I hate sounding so stupid... but I'd rather ask and find out, rather than act wish I had. I have (newly purchased) an Adamas 6 and 12 string. They both are black textured matte finish tops with the particularly awesome gold flecks.
How does one clean these? I'm ASSUMING a normal polish wouldn't really be the way. My 12 (that I got here) is in stellar shape whereas my 6 wasn't tended to very well, so needs a good once over. Thanks in advance for the help!

Wipe it down with a rag after you play it.

That's about it.

And... I just took this cause I realized the 2002 Collector in the family photo wasn't flattering

Nice pics,so what are the Adamii an 1881 6 string and 1885 12 string??
I think I see Redwood and African cherry wood collectors
You better stick to hanging them on the wall before the cat decides its some kind of new scratching post
