Jem 10th Neck Cleaning

Hello Everyone,
Long time lurker, finally a member & Proud owner of a Jem 10th Anniversary. As I'm figuring stuff out about it I noticed the neck is bare (though I think i remember seeing somewhere else people said it was 'oiled'?). How would one go about cleaning it? Mine is looking rather dirty. I was reading up on the sticky on maple freatboard cleaning, but I dont want to do anything that would damage it.

Any hints/tips on proper cleaning & maintenance would be much appreciated!

Re: Jem 10th Neck Cleaning

Well I have my own methods, but I'll stick to mainstream advice.

a nice, oil based soap, some toothbrushes, bore oil, and if need be, some 0000 steel wool.

10th necks are cleared, just very light. Use anything abrasive and you'll strip it off. Oil soap or even spit on a rag will clean it very well.
