So I bought this preowned Lakland 55-94 with a birdseye maple fretboard. It is very cool, but the previous owner(s) was very sloppy about the bass. It looks like it's been gathering dirt and dust for years. Some of it on the back of the neck. What's worse, the birdseye board has changed its color drastically. You can see how awesome it really is on the part of the fretboard protruding from the nut to the retainer. But the rest of it...:scowl: it's somewhere close to natural under the strings but brownish-grey between them. I called Lakland service and they advised pure orange oil and mineral spirits. I used both. The board became a tad better (nothing changed with the back of the neck). But still, you can only guess it's maple and you can't see the birdseye pattern from, say, 6 yards away. The wood and fretwork are great and Lakland particularly warned me against using thinners or abrasives. What do I do?
