I can only see it at a certain angle, say 35 degrees, and when I'm standing on my head, using a telescope, but it niggles me.
On an otherwise pristine deep Fireglo, can anyone recommend how to remove/restore a dull patch, obviously caused by arm contact?

Have you tried searching the forum? Try this keyword, too: Zymol.

Many thanks Shaggy. Never crossed my mind.
'I Should have Known Better'...

I did a Google search and came up with a care care company that specializes in, well, car care.
They have various Zymols, and living here in rip-off Britain, they don't come cheap. So before I order, would this one be the one?

'Zymol Detail is an oil-rich feeding product that restores original moisture and seals the paint with a hard-cured finish. Suitable for all colours. Detail Wax contains 38 percent Brazilian No. 1 Yellow Carnauba by volume.'

Love and peace

Before you use Zymol Cleaner/Wax (light blue bottle), it would be a good idea to get the area shiny again by a zesty rub with some Scratch-X on a nice, soft cotton cloth like a diaper, turkish towel, or t-shirt. Scratch-X is a mild, but very effective abrasive (incredible on JG, by the way!) and will put a nice shine on the surface. Heck, while you're at it, do the whole guitar, first with Scratch-X, then with Zymol, and see the difference!
