Ok so I did a quick search but didn't find anything.

My first guitar was a Squier Strat (let the laughing commence) and I felt like playing the old girl again. The guitar has gone under routine maintence but the neck juat seems to keep getting drier and drier. Now it's so dry that my hand starts to stick when changing positions. I use Tone Finger Ease on the neck/fretboard as a lubricant but it only lasts about an hour before it dries up again.

My question is:
Would lemon oil work better? If not (or if it isnt safe) what else could I do to bring the old girl back to life?

I don't think Finger Ease is a fret board conditioner, I think it's only for the strings...Lemon oil should work, and you should only have to apply the stuff about once a year.

Gotcha, I used the Finger Ease because my father (also guitarist) recommended it to me. Thanks for the heads up and confirmation on the lemon oil.

My first guitar wasn't even a Squier strat. It was a slightly broken Squier Bullet. So you're lucky. (+1)

Oh and yeah lemon oil.

Hi, first off I want to say please do not use lemon oil! For more information regarding general fretboard care and why not to use lemon oil see this article: http://www.muzique.com/schem/fret.htm

I use this stuff: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gibson-Luthiers-Choice-3Pack-Cleaner?sku=420163

Only $10 and it comes with polish, fretboard conditioner, and string lube. The bottles may look rather small but a little bit goes a long way. I use a very soft cloth and put a couple drops of the conditioner on it and proceed to gently rub it into the fretboard, making sure it gets a light, even coat. After that just let it dry for maybe half an hour and you're good to go.

Hmmm, I never knew this info...now I feel like kind of an ass. Oh well, I learned something new, and hopefully the thread starter will see this.

^^Dont worry about it. I didnt have the time to go get lemon oil anyways and I'm currently at work.

Thanks Op3th for that link. I guess home remedies are out of the question, lol.
