Fretboard clean / condition ?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2 yr. old SG Std. 61 with a Rosewood Fretboard, need to replace the strings and would like to clean and condition the fretboard at the same time -

What product would you  guys suggest -

Thanks

Joe

the two things I normally would use, and have worked just fine are Nomad's F1 Fretboard Oil, Gerlitz's Guitar Honey.  Both available for speedy door step delivery kinda stuff on "the amazon"....

expect all kinds of responses here.. from "Ay.. you don't need no stinking fretboard oil" to, "Well I drain calf hoofs and I use that stuff that comes of that stuff there"

I say.  keep it simple, no harm in hydrating that wood, do it like twice / three times a year and you're good to go.

Tis good stuff!!!  I like it better than the Gerlitz.  it seems lighter... if that makes sense..

Naptha is a very good way to clean a fretboard if it's really grimy. There are a lot of products out there for fretboards, everything from scented mineral oils to more esoteric things.

I usually just use scented mineral oil, but if it's dry, I break out the F-one oil.

Ernie Ball wonder wipes also work great.
