i have a friend that uses it...i don't think it will mess up your guitar at all but it really makes the strings and the fret board feel really gross. having played his guitars after they had been sprayed with the stuff, i really didn't like the way they felt or played.

a lot of times I will use a little lemon oil. I oil the fretboard with the oil while the strings are still on it. wipe off the excess oil and you have a well oiled neck with some slicked up strings

I have that stuff.... I used it once and had to restring my guitar because it felt horrible. But it won't harm your guitar.

Go back to The Pit.

Shouldn't harm your guitar, no, but I wouldn't recommend it for the same reasons others have said.

I use it when my strings or neck feels grimy and gross.It wont do any harm to your guitar at all,but it will make the strings and neck a bit slick until you play on them for a bit,which I actually like for shredding.

I find it will bring back a bit of tone in dead strings and it gets almost all of that dirt/rust/oil build up off them.The stuff is definitely a handy thing to have around,especially for glossy necks that get sticky easily.I actually have 3 cans of it and it's part of my regular guitar maintenance.


Also,it's not "fretboard lube"as an earlier poster called it.It's an aerosol that you spray on,let dry a bit,then wipe off with a cloth.

Nice, way to call him a "fag".

I'm sure you know that's rather disparaging towards homosexual people.

EDIT: Fingerboard lube... uh... isn't it string cleaner? Be more careful applying it then. Don't just spray it - put it on a cloth and wipe them down.

EDIT: Good to see you Pr0g, helpin' clear this problem and confusion up.

...ive had one can of it for about a year.....i hardly use it since im kinda OCD about changing my strings regularly.....so i hardly use it...unless the strings i buy end up digging to much into my fingers and i spray that to soften my finger tips....and yeah i guess it does help when it comes to switching positions.

Fretboard Lube just sounds funny to me but your right about it being an aerosol can....people just keep getting more ignorant as i get older..
