I've had my Epiphone Explorer about 3 years ago.. but overtime the fingerboard has started to somewhat become worse to look at. It's rough, full of little cracks etc. Is this normal for rosewood? & is there anything I could do about it? Any help would be appreciated..

The strings never touch the wood, it is there to anchor the frets which the strings actually touch.

Normal looking for a rosewood. If you wanna clean it and bring back some shine, buy some lemon oil. This one works well

Well thanks, guess I have nothing to worry about then, lol.

Yeah I've got some dunlop lemon oil. I wiped it down with a cloth about 2 month ago.. so don't wanna use it again and overdo it.
