Hi Tony,

I didn't think of that.  I also have a 15 series Martini that is not shiny, so I do think that the polish I recommended would give a shine that might be, depending upon the room the computer is kept in, impacted by the light. 

good point.

I prefer a semigloss or matt type finish on a board rather than shiny. high gloss boards tend to give off reflections under certain lighting, which can be distracting. for those who prefer a matt look try "HOWARDS Bee'swax furniture wax" easily found at home depot and others. It's just a matter of preference.
regards, tony

I have had a good experience in polishing an old Mephisto Exclusive board with guitar polish that guitarist use on high line Martins and Taylors is Virtuosa Premium Polish---I used it on the board (first the cleanser) and it has come out beautifully. 

The cleaner is first used, and allowed to dry, buffed out. It removes any old stains, including general smoke or air pollution stains, which are difficult to see until you clean.  Then, I used the polish, let dry and buffed gently until the haze gave way to shine.

Guitarists swear by it, and I have used it for years on my Martin, and now it has worked well on the board and upon the pieces, which also took to a nice shine.

I hope this helps anyone interested, 

Peter
