Does anyone know if lemon oil or any other conditioner could have an effect on the seating of acrylic fretboard inlays, having one of the 2019 re-issue RG550 (DX) models the first six or so 'sharktooth' inlays are quite large and I was interested to find out if there are any known issues such as shrinkage that have been reported.

I've never heard of that before with any sort of inlay. I'm pretty sure inlays are installed with epoxy... at least I've seen that done before, I could be wrong on that being a typical or... industry standard method. Lemon oil has been around forever. If anything adding to much oil would cause swelling. Now... maybe if the board was left untreated for a long time and it cause the board to get dry and shrink... THAT I could see being a possibility.
