    I have a Tony Franklin Fretless. The ebony on the fingerboard is unfinished. I would like to apply something on the fingerboard to help protect it. Can this product be used for this application and is it a good choice?

    I use it all the time on my boards but many will say it is too waxy. Boiled linseed oil works wonders as well IME.

    Thanks. I've got a wear spot on my 30 year old Distillate that I'd like to cover up. Does that linseed stuff blend in well over a poly finish?
