hello UG, before posting the ultimate custom Warlock, I need some help to restore it properly. Well, the fretboard seems dry and aged, but its only 3 years old so I need a CHEAP way to restore it thanks a lot

give it a good clean with 0000 grade steel wool and use lemon oil(only on rosewood and ebony).

use the same grade steel wool for fret polishing.

the fretboard is made of Rosewood, but I ask... are there any formula/ recipe to do a home Lemon oil? i Run out of money :S

Yes, the steel wool will help.

Also, instead of lemon oil, you can use linseed oil.
I tried it and think its quite nice.

:Edit:
Just don't let it sit, wipe it clean right after you apply.

do not try to recreate lemon oil, it doesn`t even come from lemons

a small bottle of lemon oil is very cheap approximatly 5 euro (£3) and will last you a couple of years.

My mother'll help me but I have found it on the bay and I wonder if it'll be a good investment

The formula 65 set is amazing. Great freatboard cleaners and it comes with a fret polisher. On top of that, it has body wax for prevent smudges and other things. It doesn't work very well on an ML shape, but since your guitar is a bit smaller, maybe it would work better.

I dont understand you, does the shape makes any difference?? I´ll use it to restore a LP fretboard and a warlock one, both rosewood
