I have a MIM Telecaster with a maple fretboard. I remember seeing a guy who had a MIM Strat with the same neck, but his had that darker color you see on high end Fenders. It was also really shiny.

He said he used some kind of polish or something. But I can't remember the brand now.

Anyone know what kind of stuff could give a darker look to a maple fretboard. It seemed like it had more of a lacquer to it.

as far as i know u dont put polish and ****e on treated maple. Maybe im wrong, maybe just clean it

There are some polish (like kaiser's ones i recommend them) that u use to clean and lubricate your necks so its somewhat slippery so you can go play faster or some people just use it to clean there guitars.

Any sort of this polish will turn wood into darker color (but not forever tho, just until it dries) its like when you wet your clothes, they look somewhat darker and weight a bit more... You should get the same effect with ANY guitar lubricant but i recommend Kaiser as i alredy said =D

I can't find a polish called Kaiser.

Yes, he means Kyser. "Dr Stringfellow" (by Kyser) is what I have for string lube, but I think they make fretboard cleaners 'n' stuff.
