What is the best way to clean this kind of finish?

While it could be alder as part of the base wood choice, that the neck wood blends in rather well also makes me think it could be maple. How heavy is it? In '96 there was still poplar in use, and this is most certainly not that.
Looks like it was originally clear (gloss or satin I couldn't tell you), but it's pretty worn and grungey, or else it was stripped and refinished to that. Either way, I'd strip that finish down to raw wood and either put a new clear finish on, or stain it / use a tinted clear to get the color from the wood.
Or, disinfect it and let that "patina" remain as a conversation starter. There is no wrong answer here.

Do or do not; there is no understand.
