Im going to put something on my rosewood fretboard to condition it, however I dont know weather to use lemon oil or some sort of formulated stuff for fretboards. So should I just use lemoil or should I use some of that other ****(like this) ?

Im also changing the strings, so could someone recommend me some nice strings? Im going to be putting .45 gauge on my bass if that matters. I might get Roto's but ive heard they are very bright and im not sure sure I will like them. Opinions?

They use lemon oil, but I don't think lemon oil is the only thing in them. They're much easier, too. You just wipe it on and let it evaporate.

The string cleaner is something entirely different, I think.
Nope, no sig here.

i use mineral oil ("Fret-EZ") on my rosewood fretboard. a humidifier is designed for acoustic guitars. i keep a couple of silicon packs in my case, they actually came with the case when i bought it. it keeps the inside of the case dry. i think a humidifier would promote rust on the hardware.

Good point. I keep those silicon packs in my case too. I enjoy getting new things with them in there so I can replace the ones in my bass case
