no U can't use lemon oli on a ebony fret board as it would just ruin your fret board.


Huh? I use lemon oil (from Dunlop) on my ebony fretboard KV2 every 5-6 months and haven't had a problem with it.
This one:


Lemon oil is just fine for ebony, but bad for maple.

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.

I've always used this stuff.

During every string change. Like the other stuff though, not to be used on finished fretboards (maple generally).

*gak!* croaks.


oil unfinished boards like said. lemon oil, synthetic linseed...

if it's slippery, Finished feel, like most maples, then the oil would smear all over it and posibly leave stains.
in the case of finished necks you can just polish them, like you do ur guitar's body.


no need to oil more than a couple times a year.
