'Sup EG,

So, my brother just scored himself a gorgeous Hagström Viking II yesterday. It's a mean machine and sounds awesome, and it's absolutely beautiful.

So, I'm going to his place today to set it up a little, but I was just wondering... does anyone know if it's safe to use lemon oil on the fretboard, as it seems to be some sort of a compound? Any input will be appreciated, thanks!

I'm thinking of buying a Hagstrom soon (as soon as I get the chance to p[lay one, since there are none in my town) so I'm pretty interested in this too.

I suppose you could call this a bump.

Here's the official answer from Hagström support a few years ago:

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry.

As the Resinator fret board generally contains wood (consists of hard epoxies and wood) it would not hurt to oil the fret board from time to time (Perhaps once every two years).
I would recommend “Parafin olja”, which can be sold at most hardware stores. It is very clean and clear, does not smell, nor leaves a stocky substance.

its a compound which means sure its wood but it doesnt have pores nor doesit breath like a solid peice of wood.

oil it to clean it and keep it shiney, but its not to make sure it doesnt dry out. its going to be more resistant to stuff than a solid peice of rosewood.

1 time every 2 years is probably to clean all the muck off.
