    My fretless has a pink ivorywood board, and since the wood is used so rarely, I've never seen any threads on how to take care of it. Does it need occassional lemon or boiled linseed oil?

    Hey Bryan,

    I've got a really niced flamed pink ivory fingerboard blank that I bought a while back but haven't built a bass with it yet... nor have I before.

    I would suggest contacting Larry at Gallery Hardwoods. I'll post the question in the Gallery Hardwoods forum.

    :^)~

    Just oil it with lemon oil if it wasn't finished with anything.
