    Just got my 69 jazz out of storage and the board was all sorts of sad and dry. Gave it a couple treatments with fret doctor and it's bounced back nicely. Photos made me happy so wanted to share

    Nice. Glad you didn't have any inlays popping out or getting loose.

    I recently started using Gorgomyte Fret and Fretboard cleaner/conditioner. Amazing stuff! Still use WonderWipes when I'm not going to take the strings off.

    Ah interesting! Haven't come across that. Have you had a chance to compare to fret doctor? I tried some local bore oil once on a mim and it was meh

    No I haven't tried Fret Doctor. I'm pleased with the Gorgomyte (GHS has a version, but I haven't tried it), but might try something else when I run out. But that will be a while. The Gorgomyte really shines the frets but doesn't wear them, and cleans and moisturizes the rosewood (only) board. So it does double duty. As good as it works I don't really know why I would be interested in another product.
