In case you don't remember I also said I was standing barefoot in a puddle during a thunderstorm whilst doing it.

Cathbard, I recently arrived at an outdoor gig after being assured there would be cover. Of course, there wasn't. Told the promoter we would be playing indoors or not playing at all, got the answer "well if it starts raining, you can just take your stuff inside and set it back up in there" -_- Gotta love people who organise gigs that don't know anything about live music, huh lol?

It is a long story so I'll give you the short answer.

That 'lemon oil' just seeps into the grain, dries out and causes the wood to crack (age more quickly). It is like cocaine. The more you give it the more it wants. Use GHS Fast Frets instead. If you had a super dry board - I could see using it to bring it back to life but only a small amount.

If urine got into the fretboard I can't think of anything that would get it out. I'd get a new one.

If I cleaned it with lemon oil and then rubbed GHS fast frets onto the fretboard, would it be better?

IMO that would be overkill.

If you truly think that urine soaked into the rosewood board then I guess nothing else is really going to make it worse.

The whole Lemon Oil thing for rosewood fingerboards is one of those topics that people seem to be very divided on. I used to spray my board down on my Strat every time I changed strings. I loved the way it felt. Then I learned about how it causes the reverse affect over time and I quit doing it. Now I just use Fast Frets.

Your situation is different. Find a local guitar luthier and and ask his or her opinion and condition of your guitar. I'd be more worried about the hardware and electronics than the neck. Urine will rust out metal parts super quick.

As for the lemon oil, seriously, ONE DROP ONLY ON A RAG. Don't get nuts and use it like pledge, you will saturate your fret board and it will make it worse.

This is what I believe.

To the above poster: I always DROWN my rosewood and ebony fretboards in lemon oil and let it sink in for a couple of hours, then I whipe the excess off and do it again.

That way I get great dark moisturised fretboards

This is what I do not believe.

Just an update, Bought some planet waves Deep cleaning cream polish and liquid Carnauba wax today, Polished and cleaned my guitar with it and cleaned fret board with lemon oil. Fret board still smells, just barely, I have to put my nose on the fretboard to smell it now so thats good. Body smells good, smells like Carnauba wax which smells good. Case was bombed with detol disinfectant spray, now it smells good.

Problem is, many of us here can envision you doing exactly that...it's not entirely out of the realm of the possible, you contrary old bastard!!
