Is one of them better? I have Dunlop 65 Lemon Oil, and some SIT orange oil. Any pros/cons between the two? Thanks.

They're exactly the same, except one has E-limonene in it and the other has Z-limonene, making them smell (and, if you really want to try it, taste) different. Other than that, they are exactly the same, and it comes down to which you prefer the smell of.

They are both just mineral oil with some added fragrance. Doesn't matter which you pick.

I've never played a Lemon Oil, but I quite like Orange, always wanted an OR50. But they're a bit overpriced if you're stateside.

As long as you're using cleaner bought from a guitar store for guitar, it doesn't really matter.

Someone told me lemon makes a nice OR50 like amp. A bit cheaper here.

Apparently they sound great in stereo.

so when you buy a lemon amp, is it considered GOOD if the particular amp turns out to be a lemon?

Don't actually use anything that contains real lemon oil. It's pretty bad for the guitar over a long period.

proof?

On the bottle, it quite often says "Do not use on maple fretboards".

I don't know what it does, but if it says that on the bottle, I'm taking their word for it. They're gunna know more than us.

I can't find any proof apart from similar topics on other forums, so you can either take my word for it or possibly damage your guitar.

Hmm, dunno. People have been using lemon oil on woods, furniture etc for decades. Doubt it would hurt it.

True, but I doubt they would print it on the bottle if there wasn't some truth in it. I think it's advertised as lemon oil but I don't think there's any lemon in it. It's more of a brand if you like.

because of the grain of maple, and the density and all those tiny things, that it should not be used on maple.


many people use it on rosewood fretboards with great success, and it even darkens up the rosewood alittle.

Actual real lemon oil yes will do damage. Don't use oil made from actual lemons!

But the commercial stuff you buy, like the Dunlop 65 is actually light mineral oil with some fragrance, which is perfectly fine for rosewood and ebony.

Bingo! Just wanted to add that maple fretboards usually has some sort of finish on them so that's the other reason we don't recommend it. It probably won't damage the finish but there are more suitable products to use for maple fretboards with finishes.
