    I have a Ibanez SR5005 Prestige that is a all Wenge wood body and they at times can dry and not look as
    good as when new. I was wondering what would be a good oil or conditioner to keep the wood looking it's best?

    With any wood, I've found that lemon oil works best.
     
  3. No, the smell is horrible.
    Go into a school band instrument store. Ask for some bore oil. This is the stuff clarinettists coat the inside of their grenadine clarinets with, to prevent drying and cracking.

  4. Oh yeah, directions. Squirt on sparingly, and hand rub into all the wood surface. Then let it dry and soak for about 15 to 20 minutes. Rub off with a soft cotton cloth.

    I use food grade mineral oil on all my wood. But that's just because I don't really oil my instruments, but my cooking gear...

    Still, it works great and costs little.
