why would you EVER do that?

seems a tad weird.....just go to your nearest guitar store (GC), and buy a pack of fret board cleaner - it'll make it look nice and and it'll shine.

well you can. but it will start to smell when it rots.

olvie oil is too thick to be of use.

it's called "Fast Fret." most music stores cary it. it's just white mineral oil for fret boards. makes your strings last longer too. supposedely...

Lemongrass oil or GHS Fast Fret, works a dream, shines & makes the neck faster.

i find that fast fret builds up over time. and might not be silicone free.


TS are we talking about a rosewood board here?

Yes what a good idea, use a fairly potent acidic!

olive oil is usually used on the strings of sitars. I'd prolly keep it off the fretboard though. I didn't like the feel of it on my strings, though. Whatever you use, less is more =)

Fast fret doesn't built up if you wipe it off properly.

^not stupid. guys will actually say to use it. as it does make the board feel better.

the problem with home polishes are that they contains water (a no-no) and silicone. a huge no-no.

it just makes sense to go with a natural made for guitar, product.

No, its just that the nearest guitar store is 30 minutes away and that would be a big waste of time.

I hate the feel of Fastfret. You really have to rub it and dig it out from the sides of the frets or it builds up. I would go with the lemon oil. The best thing for a fretboard is the oils from human fingers (yuck.)
Use olive oil on your salad with some spices and a little cheese.

Thats the main reason why I ask if it was ok to use furniture polish lemon oil. The closest guitar shop is 45min away and I can get the lemon oil at a local place.

perhaps if you can find a specialty, pure lemon or linseed oil, from a local shop that could work. (hardware store might have the right kind of linseed)

i would need to see the product to know.

home furniture polishes are a no. but maybe some of the more expensive oils they sell in stores would work.

^no coke on bare wood. come on man.


and as far as linseed oil goes, i think the synthetic variety is the safest.

I occasionally use Teak Oil or Tung Oil on my fretboard - it preserves the wood and leaves less chemical-ness than these guitar products you get.
Olive oil is entirely silly, as mentioned many times above. I love olives,but leaving that smell on my guitar?No thanks. And just because something ends in 'oil' doesn't mean it's suitable for treating wood - would you use Crude Oil, for example?
