    Hey everyone, just posted a new video to my Axe Hacks YouTube channel on rosewood fretboard conditioning. I go over the method I typically use, as well as the use of Gorgomyte. If you dig the channel, you can subscribe HERE. The guitar in the vid is a cheapie Ibby RG :wink: Enjoy!

    I just have a quick question regarding the original wizard neck on my '87 Rg550. Is it considered a finished or unfinished maple? I just bought it used and am trying to decide how to go about cleaning it. I have oil finished maple necks on some of my other guitars and for those I clean and...

    I just got a RGA121 natural finish today and it needs to be cleaned up, but this is my first natural/oiled finished guitar and I'm not sure what to use. I have some Dunlop 65, Stewmac Preservation Polish (for lacquer and varnish finishes, with no wax or silicone residues), and even some...

    Hi everyone, first off hope everyone's doing fine. I just picked up a '94 SR1305 bass (picture below). Its not dinged up too badly so I figured I'd pickl it up and restore it. My question is, what did Ibanez use to finish this guitar, is it Tung Oil? My second question is, since its looking a...

    Hi I used some product called red grease on my tremolo arm to make it loose (and I can fix it in position by tightening the nut on it). The problem is that it started to wear down the finish on it, like it's attacking the black chrome or something. This happened in about a year... In the...

    Hello everyone, I consider selling my Ibanez js6000. It's in good shape, but not mint. I comes with an Ibanez hardcase. I was thinking about 1250 euro, bids are welcome too. I live in Belgium, so it's probably best to only ship to Europe, especially since 1250 euro is quite a lot of american...

    Hi everybody. I have been looking for a bottle of lemon oil here in my city, but unfortunately I can't find one. But I've found out that there is another lemon oil that is used in food and cosmetics. Will this lemon oil work in fretboards like the lemon oil I'm looking for?
  10. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Just wondering what the neck finish is on my RGA321F. I think it's a wizard & prestige (whatever that means!). Is it oil finished or a sort of 'satin finish' laquer? I just want to know so I can maintain it, if it's oil finished I'll use an appropriate oil (eg Danish, teak or tung oil); if...

    Does anyone know the exact kind of oil or stain used on the JS6? I have one that I've played for years, just recently finding out that it may be valuable someday, but it has a little bit of rub-off of the oil where a pickguard would normally be. It's not deep, just the oil is gone needing a...

    Hi all I've been reading up about Bore oil and have decided it is definitely the way to go for treating a rosewood fingerboard. However, this has lead me to a few new points to consider: 1. Up until now I have been using Pure Raw Linseed Oil. Now that I will be using Bore Oil, should I...
