I've looked for threads about this on other forums, but other than re-oiling and waxing as recommended on the EB site I'm still not sure. My question is how to clean the unfinished maple fretboard on my SR5. Even though I wipe my bass after every use the unfinished maple shows a darker pattern where my fingers have been most. Its not very obvious but I would like to remove it before it gets any darker. I have tentatively tried Lem-oil without success. I was considering getting a luthier to remove the stain with a light sand and maybe even apply a matt varnish for protection. I would be grateful if anyone has a cheaper alternative. Thanks.
