what kind of oil should i treat my rosewood fretboard with?
There's only one thing I use...I get it shipped up from GB Guitars in the UK..
Lem-Oil....I treat my Ebony fingerboard with it...wipe a little on....rub it hard to clean the board and frets...wipe it off.....!!
Wipe another layer on..leave it for 30mins and then wipe any remain lem-oil off...its feeds the wood and brings bk to natural finish...great for doin...another where wood is exposed...my friend now uses it religiously on his Warwick.....
Lem-oil can be found at most music shops..i get it from GB guitars cause they are bigger bottles. ...
One tip tho...dont pour onto the fingerboard....a lil goes a long way..better to put some on a cloth and then wipe of the fingerboard ...
Hope this helps... ....
I use lemon oil.
I use orange oil/wax on the recommedation of Ken Bebense. Does the same thing but smells really good. I could't stand the smell of the lemon oil I had. I use it for pretty much all raw/oiled parts, my entire dolphin, etc.
LEMON OIL!!!! WORK GREAT!!
butchers block oil/oil wood preserver
I always wonder about this as well. Some people say not to put anything on rosewood while others swear by some kind of oil. Seems to me that if you never clean your fingerboard the natural buildup of finger oils would seal the wood or at least keep it from drying out.
I use linseed oil when it starts looking dry.
I use linseed oil in my Rosewood and Ebony fingerboards.
alot of people say NOT to use wax type products on fingerboards, since you rjust adding more wax to transfer to your strings and kill them faster.
I would not use linseed oil, it occasionally combusts I am told. Not sure if its true, but why would they lie and why take the chance when you could use wonderful butchers block oil...
TCM guitars recommends a few drops of Watco Danish oil.
...I said it once & a thousand times after, mineral oil...
Lemon oil or Orange oil works good.
Both clean the fingerboard at the same time they replenish the oils.
