Re: Cleaning the RG1550FM, especially the maple fretboard
I found very interesting post on another forum, what you think about it?
"On a finished maple board, no. Fretboard wipes are only for use on rosewood fingerboards and oil finished maple necks (boards and backs). If your Fender has a painted neck and board, fretboards wipes will only lay an oily slink on them.
And there's nothing wrong with using pure lemon oil on rosewood boards. Where problems arise is that most products have actually very little lemon oil, usually nothing more than lemon scent, and are made from petroleum distillates. Real lemon oil works fine on rosewood boards, though I personally prefer to use the Wipes product, and very sparingly only. On oil finished maple (front and back), I'll only use a WW every third string change or so. I prefer the "softer" feel of the wood without conditioning the wood more often than that. Each string change I use a warm, damp washcloth with a little Dawn dish detergent to clean the maple neck, buff it dry, and it feels great, even though it doesn't have that deep luster, as when done with WW. About every third time keeps 'em just how I like 'em."
BTW. finished means lacquered right?
