Okay next weekend Im going to the music store but I dont know what cleaning products to get.

Im gonna ask for a polish that is "electronic friendly" but what type of fretboard cleaner should I get? I want something that will clean and shine my fretboard, someone told me lemon oil but I have a maple fretboard so I dont know what to get.

Thanks

do not, DO NOT, use lemon oil on a maple fretboard. you will not be happy with the results.

since it most likely a lacquered maple fretboard, a damp cloth, perhaps with a very mild detergent should be enough to clean the board off.

There any type of fretboard cleaner that is maple-friendly?

maple fretboards are sealed. Most fretboard cleaners have oil in them, meant to be absorbed by the fretboard wood. Since maple is sealed, all the oil would do is gunk up your fretboard. Just a damp towel, or as stated, a very mild detergent to clean your maple fretboard.

Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer

Ok, it makes sense now. Thanks.

If it's very dirty some watered down windex will work, otherwise a damp cloth is the way to go.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
