Mineral spirits, turpentine, paint thinner (spirit based, NOT LACQUER THINNER) I've been told that naptha (lighter fluid) will be OK but I'm a little afraid of that. Don't let it contact anything but the fretboard.
Okay thanks. How would someone get it off?

I use human oil. Seriously, if you play your guitar regularly you should never need to oil your fretboard.

I've never oiled a fretboard. An occasional cleaning with a slightly damp cloth is all I do.
Additionally, I've played a couple gits that have had oiled fretboards and they stank.

I'm not playing Monterey pop festival...

I know what turpentine is.
It also happens to be the most flammable substance I know of.
Hence Monterey pop festival reference.

Gasoline is flammable. Turpentine is flammable. Even canola oil is flammable. Oh, and canola oil will go rancid when exposed to air. Phewww! Get it off quick. :eek:
