Like you, I completely disassemble any used guitar I get, including removing the tuning machines in most cases. Cleaning is with a damp cloth first, followed by a mild polish if needed and then spray wax. I tend to use Dunlop guitar chemicals.

After that, I vacuum out the inside, clean the fretboard as above and put strings on it. From there I do the minimal setup that I feel comfortable with. If it needs more work, it goes to a guitar tech.
Will have to try the Gorgomyte sometime.
