  • Hemp oil for cleaning fret boards? Is this a good idea?

    Hello,

    I found "HEMP OIL FRET BOARD CONDITIONER" on ebay at http://stores.ebay.com/ZZGuitarworks

    A few questions:
    1. Has anyone tried this?
    2. Does anyone know if this stuff would be better to use than the standard lemon oil or would it be the same?
    3. Is this worth experimenting with?

    Thanks!

    I've been using Formby's lemon oil for years without any problems. It works great and it's inexpensive.

    Why gamble?

        I've been using bacon grease lately.

        IMO, if you play right after eating sausage pizza it conditions the fretboard wonderfuly.

          Yeah, that sounds like something to avoid. Not worth it, IMO.

          I should be practicing.

                My choice is walnut oil.

                            I use gun stock oil, available at any sporting goods store, but not often. I've used it once each on my 33-year-old Sakura 12-string, my 5-year-old Alvarez beater, and our daughter's probably-25-year-old Epi, with good results each time.
