    Take care of them? Just some guitar polish and a soft cloth.

    Lemon or Orange oil. I prefer Homer Formbies.

    the most important care is a professional dressing

    my fretboard is looking a little dry in the upper registers on the fretboard and I wasn't sure what to use on it....

  11. Here is what I use! It's awesome! :smug:
     
  12. Yup, I use that too, as well as their string cleaner - good stuff.

    I use gunstock oil on my maple neck - is this any good for the rosewood or not?
