Re: Cleaning/oiling fretboard - how to with strings ON?
Yes, according to ibanez, it's best to change strings one at a time. This is correct, however it's also about the most impractical process in the world. How do you clean and oil your neck? How do you clean the dust and grime from between the pickups? You can't. The idea is that if you take the strings off all at once, there will be no tension on the bridge and it'll be a bit of a pain in the ass to get the guitar back in tune. It'll take you about 10 minutes atleast to get it stable again. However, if you just throw a 9v battery into the trem cavity so that the bridge is resting on the battery, this will keep your trem steady while you remove all the strings and do some housekeeping.
