I'm going to re-string my Fender Telecoustic today, and I've noticed some build up of dust in the frets. It's a rosewood fretboard, and I lemon oil it too. I heard I should use a razor blade to get the dust out of there, or is there anything else I should do? Should I clean the frets then lemon oil the fretboard or vice versa?
buy the dunlop cleaning and care kit its awesome.
use a toothbrush/nail brush for super cheapness

Clean the fretboard first. Otherwise you're gonna have dust all in your lem-oil. Also, im sure you can find something less harsh than a razor blade.

Dab a bit of lemon oil on your rag and just scrub the goop off -- it'll come off. Then condition your fretboard. Also, wiping your strings every time after you play will prevent it from buiding up again.
use fine grade steel wool on your fretboard and then wipe it down then use your lemon oil that is what i do works great however my fretboard is ebony and is just a bit harder than other woods. i wouldnt use a razor blade it is just to risky .
