i've never had a problem with lemon oil and ebony, but i'm a bit of a chancer and no luthier, so I'm definitely not saying "Do it!"

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

only use a little bit. a teaspoon on a cloth should be enough to do the whole fretboard. and i use Dr Ducks as well and have had the same bottle for over 2 yrs

Don't do it very often. Keep it clean with a dry cloth most times. Only use lemon oil when it gets bad.

I think the point with all these cleaners, including lemon oil, is not to slop them on so thick that they seep under the frets and get into the end grain.


Yeah I normally just spray a little of it onto a cloth and then wipe that on the fretboard, I don't spray it straight onto the fretboard.

If your fretboard is extremely grimy and has visible buildup, naptha (Rossignol lighter fluid) is a solvent that won't harm even a Gibson nitrocellulose lacquered guitar, but should loosen up whatever's on there. A credit card can help scrape (*with* the grain) big deposits of crap, a toothbrush will get into a crevice or two, and a few drops of mineral oil will help protect the wood from moisture in liquid form. Wipe it on, wait a few minutes (do NOT put a ton on and let it soak in) and then wipe it off. Done.

Treat Ebony the same as Rosewood.

I really like the Gibson Luthier cleaner products. I've tried other ones, but I just like Gibson's stuff the best.
