    no, not what you think, but rather a real lemon.

    I've been told that lemon oil is the best way to go as far as cleaning fretboards (except maple of course) and for returning the shin to Warwick's brass frets.

    I been told that this oil should be compraised of only natural lemon juices.

    now for the question:

    can I just squeeze a fresh lemon, use the lemon liquids to wet a cloth and go on cleaning the fretboard?

    I think I read on an other thread that it's just oil that's scented like lemons.

    Although I believe the lemon juice would definitely add that nice lemony smell we so crave in our kitchens and bathrooms. :D

    No. Lemon juice is more acid and water than oil. Bad news for you fretboard. craaaack.

    Try doing a search here on the subject, it's been done before. IIRC, boiled linseed oil was one suggestion.

    Do a search. This topic has been covered several times. You should find everything you need to know that way.
