removing fret board stains?

my friends were talking about fret board stains and there were chemicals that could remove them.
this issue was never really a concern till i got into older ibanez and yea... some fret boards have pretty bad stains so i was wondering about the possibilities.

Jim Dunlop do a nice range of polishes and creams which are really good at removing that sort of thing...

Re: removing fret board stains?

Personally i'd use a lil bit of ligher fluid, although it "might" hurt the maple and not too recommended, i find it easy to work with.

I use it everytime i clean my rosewood fretboard

I would just use a finer sandpaper or even steel wool and lightly sand the wear spots until you get some fresh wood then put some clear coat over it.
