I just asked a similar question in the gear section. What guitar do you have? Is it a Behringer El Toro? I have one, and lets be honest it SUCKS. But w.e, i just wipe it with diamand polishing cloth and use my pick to scrape off the thick parts.

Does lemon oil really help? I've heard a lot of ppl say to use it.

is it a rosewood fretboard?

Lemon oil works by far the best.

If you dont have it, you can buy it in nearly any cleaning supply store.

NO BLEACH, NO SOAP..

Trust me lemon oil is the safest choice

I really dont wanna make another thread, so I'll put it here

Guitars usually come with a set of .9s on em right? I bought my Agile awhile ago and I'm gonna replace the strings tomorrow, while I'm replacing strings I'm gonna clean my fretboard with some lemon oil.. so it does have something to do with this thread lol

It depends.

Do you tune lower than standard?
Do you break strings often?

no I never tune lower on this guitar
and I've never broken a string on either of my electrics before (I changed my washburn's strings once in the 10 months I've had it)

Ok, then I say just shop around.
I usually change the strings on my Ibanez every two months, so since I got it Ive tried quite a few and am happy with Ernie ball .10s, but that's because i break the strings and down tune regularly.

I say go for the .09s like you said, just be sure to add a bit of variety every once in a while.

My agile (the one I'm switching strings) is an LP
and the Washburn is like an ibanez I would think, like a super strat

without a floyd tho

10's on the agile(which model?) and 9's on the washburn. mosts pauls come with 10's on em. gives a warmer tone.

AL-2000 and really? they seem lighter, and easier to bend than on my washburn. (i have 10s on my washburn right now)

it would seem I have them reversed

i was thinking bout getting the AL-2000 w/ floyd(not anymore though). but most lps that ive played have 10. try putting 10s on it. maybe ull like it more. if not just switch back.

I'll do that, thank you much sir

edit: it wont screw up my neck will it? Like will I have to get it set-up again?
