Treating stiffness/dryness

I was just wondering how do you guys deal with a neck that's really dry feeling and seems to make the playing feel stiff? Do you use lemon oil, fast fret or what?

I love my RG7321 but it's got this horrible stiffness about it, I can't really glide up and down the fretboard with much ease...

Nothing wrong with treating a good stiff

Just get some Lube and rub it in gently by hand till the stiffness and dryness is gone. Buy in bulk and save money.

Re: Treating stiffness/dryness

Generally when I have stiffness I dont treat it. That's for Mrs Cid to take care of.
Dryness make the stiffness almost impossible to take care of. Usually though, dryness can be taken care of by spitting in it/ on it.

I saw Jimi spray a big dose of finger-ease on his neck before playing.
