I have this bottle of string conditioner,Dunlop one to be precise,and I was wondering if i can use it for my fretboard too.I mean,the local music shop has ran outta stocks for fretboard conditioner,and i thought maybe I can use the string conditioner for my fretboard.So,is it possible?

i wouldnt. that looks like fast fret.

not harmful to fretboards, but not a board conditioner.

luckily u only need to condition your board a couple times a year. so im sure ull come across some lemon oil before it's too late.

in the meantime feel free to use that product on the strings, not all over the board.

Whenever I apply that to the strings,the area around the 1st to 3rd fret of the fretboard will touch some of the polish.A little won't hurt right?

honestly, id have to say it's fine. just wipe off the excess. this stuff is made to be put on strings while they are on the board. they wont put anything in there that's harmfull.

if anything, it'll make the board seem a little slick.

Fast Fret (GHS brand) is made with mineral oil... so if this is similar, then it might just be oil based .

Go to a music store that sells stuff for woodwinds (clarinets, sax, oboe) and get some bore oil. You can use that to treat your fretboard, works great. I use Fret Doctor and it's essentially bore oil.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.
