Re: Fret Oil

if you have a rosewood board and use lemon oil, fret doctor,etc...you're all a bunch of dumb ************s. Just ask Scott Grove.


I use the Dunlop Lemon Oil about twice a year.

TBH though since I switched to using Elixer Strings, I only change strings about every 3 months now for the last 3 years.

Make sure to ask Scott to tune your guitar after he is done with the fingerboard...

Re: Fret Oil

I wouldnt suggest "foodgrade " oils on your guitars.
i ran out of fastfret and kept buying it over n over when it dried up.

I ordered a new few things and they sent a fastfret for free but it was a slightly dry one. I read the side and it said mineral oil.
I looked at the bottle of baby oil in the store that said "100% mineral oil " and bought it.

BEST 99CENTS I EVER SPENT LOL.

I went home and poured a little on the container to let the applicator soak it up and shook my head sayin No ****!
its baby oil!

Been workin great for many yrs.

Linseed and olive oil sound romantic and artsy fartsy.

I use olive for cooking and i am worried about the organic breakdown (bacteria) .

I used linseed for oil painting. (Expensive)

Baby oil is a cheap and great product.

THE BEST on the market is Fret Doctor! Hands down!
This is the ONLY oil I will use.

Used olive oil it for years on Gibsons with REAL Brazillian rosewood, Gibsons Obeche boards, Fenders various rosewood offerings and just about everything else by everyone else.

It does not hurt the instrument. Wood is organic. I would be more concerned with a petroleum based oil than anything that comes from a plant.

Re: Fret Oil

Finally dressed my SG with this stuff, was expecting to see an oily sheen on my neck but not so. Sprayed it on and after wiping it off the neck dried, can hardly tell I put anything on it. The new cobaults are pretty nice although they cost twice as much they are supposed to not rust like regular strings. We shall see...

Re: Fret Oil

I got a really filthy broken in maple neck on an Ibanez Strat, its missing alot of the finish too. Can I use this fret oil to clean this up? I got Guitar Honey - bottle of red pump $h!t.

I use nothing other than Gibson Fretboard Conditioner.
