Dunlop Fretboard 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil: Produktbewertung von nickname009 (content in English)
This is the industry standard go-to lemon oil. I don’t know any other brand or any other make to be honest with you. All I recognize is this Dunlop version. And I don’t know if there are others that vary too much from each other, actually I don’t think they do very too much from each other to begin with. However, why I chose this and stuck with the Dunlop is because of the ingenius sponge top! This is the absolute most perfect way to apply lemon oil on fingerboards or anything! It’s clean, sanitary and efficient! Lemon oil can be used in a variety of ways instead of just moistening the fretboard, I’ve also used it to match the tint of certain unfinished woods with others I find it’s great for such an application. As most people know, I personally wouldn’t oil my board everyday but maybe every string change to keep the wood looking good and to prevent those cracklines (seldom in white color) that you see. It’s also good for restoration projects if you’ve got old guitars laying around that haven’t been treated to well, once the frets are cleaned and the gunk is removed you can apply the lemon oil and get a really clean and fresh looking fingerboard, a healthy fingerboard is a good fingerboard! Also helps to remove the fake dye that some guitar companies put on their fingerboards to get a darker rosewood look. This fake dye is the cause to your finger turning black everytime after you play your guitar. Who would want black fingers everytime you play?! Use lemon oil, let it soak in a bit, wipe it off and repeat. Oh, yes and I used this primarily on dark rosewood or dark unfinished wood, it’s not completely necessary for maple boarded guitars and such as the maple grains are quite tight and sealed unlike rosewood and mahogany which leave a bit more to desire.
