There was quite a discussion back in 2004 regarding this, and a number of luthiers were going to obtain some of this wax and try it out. Does anyone have an update on its use, pro and con? I am not interested in it strictly as a polish, but rather to protect the varnish from wear from perspiration--especially on the upper rib from the left hand. We have had a clear film on this area on 1 instrument in particular, and after a few years, that needs to be replaced. We have some nice instruments in the family, and I would prefer that they stay that way for future players also. On a side note, I have used it for a number of years to protect the finish of my Heckel bassoon, especially on the bell and around the finger holes. The finish around the finger holes are very prone to wear. I started too late to protect this varnish area from damage, but use of Renaissance does seem to have stopped it from progressing any further. Thanks. Jim
