    Hey Folks, What type of cleaner/protectant do you use on a Stingray neck? Mine's a maple fingerboard, and yellowing wouldn't bother me a bit.

    I don't , but you might want to oil the abck of your neck annunally. i use birtchwood casey tru oil, gunstock oil. It doesn't really need it, but its really the only upkeep i ever do to it, and it always plays great.

    Pretty much the same here. I wipe my necks down with a soft rag after playing, and don't really do any maintenance on them.

    For the acrylic and polyurethane finishes on my basses, I use Alembic Super Polish. It cost me about 8 bucks 5 years ago and I still am using the same bottle. You just spray it on and lightly buff with a soft, clean rag to a smooth finish. Also, it doesn't create a waxy build up and you can use it as much as you want. My comparison to you is with my jazz bass that has a maple fingerboard. I use the super polish on it when I change strings.

    Check out for more specs and you can buy it from their online store.

    Best Wishes,
