I have a new LSVA Martin and
already have a stain on the top where my arm rests. I've
tried everything to get it off and nothing seems to work. This guitar
is spotless elsewhere. I have used a baby cloth for years for
protection against this but this time I just didn't do as much as I
should have. Got any suggestions for me to remove this stain?
It's not that noticable yet.
If the sweat mark has been there long it will have to be rebuffed . In almost all cases it will come out and look fine again. The only thing you can try to use that will help and may take it out completely is a product called Virtuoso Cleaner. This stuff is amazing and is worth a try. If this doesn't work due to heavy plasticizer and sweat buildup the stain should probably be professionally removed.

I went to the local music store and got some Peavey guitar polish. It worked superbly!!!
