    So the fretboard in my 78 jazz needs to be clean.
    Im attaching 2 pics to show.

    How and with what do you suggest me cleaning it?

    Dampen a cloth, wipe it down. Don't soak it, just damp is fine.

    Let it dry and play it.

    I remove the strings (and usually change them anyways) and use stuff called the natchez solution. You can order it from natchezsolution.com. It's thick yellow goopy stuff for cleaning wood furniture, but it works well on my bass. Just put some on a cloth, wipe the fretboard, leave it for an hour, wipe excess, and you're done.
