    By "trying it" what exactly do you mean? Putting it on the fretboard or the finish?

    Here is a discussion from Maestronet about using it on violin varnish.....

    https://maestronet.com/forum/index.p...ystalline-wax/

    Seems like if it could be used on violins it could be used on a vintage Gibson. However some folks advise caution if there are cracks or open seams.

    I have used it regularly over Tru Oil finishes on my own guilds, and I also use it sparingly on my Lowden guitar, It gives a protective coating to the instrument. No problems and I have been using it for a few years now since a woodturning friend recommended it to me.

    I have been using it for 30 years. Works best on non porous surfaces.
