ColorTone Fretboard Finishing Oil

About This Item

Preserves and beautifies fingerboards and bridges, leaving a smooth non-sticky feel!


Unfinished fingerboards and bridges benefit from special protection. ColorTone® Fretboard Finishing Oil keeps new rosewood and ebony looking good, feeling new and playing great. Restore a like-new appearance and smooth feel to sanded wood. 8-ounce bottle.

Pure linseed and mineral oils have been traditional fingerboard preservatives, but they don't dry completely hard, often leaving a sticky playing surface. ColorTone Fretboard Finishing Oil combines the nourishing benefit of traditional linseed with special dryers. 24 hours after application the wood is sealed and protected. The fretboard looks great and feels smooth, never sticky.

ColorTone Fretboard Finishing Oil works best when applied sparingly—a single bottle goes a long way! Simply wipe it on with a soft cloth, wipe off, and buff. It's guitar-safe when properly used: won't loosen or stain inlays, frets or bindings.

Be sure the fingerboard is clean and dry before application. Not for use on finished maple fretboards or finished bridges.

I used this on the fretboard on my Ibanez bass, and it brought the grain out and made it look so much better that I thought I would try it on the body.....I love the results, what do you think? Highly recommended.

I really like the way this oil enhances the color of the finger board. The fingerboard also retains that fresh oiled color longer

A little goes a long way. After cleaning a 1976 Gibson SG Custom's ebony fretboard with naphtha, the conditioner made it look and feel like new. Highly recommended.

Great Fretboard Finish!

I recently re-fretted a mountain dulcimer with a walnut fretboard. It previously had lacquer on it, so after sanding that away and re-fretting, I applied the ColorTone finish. It dried quickly after two or three coats to a perfect, hard, playable finish. Since most discussions of this finish are related to ebony and rosewood surfaces, I asked Stewmac about using it on walnut. They assured me it would be fine, and they were right! This is clearly my preferred fretboard finish now. Thanks Stewmac!

It was a new fretboard and it looks great with the oil on it. Can't wait to redo my other guitars at the next string change.

Bought a Gibson SG in 94 and only cleaned up the fingerboard once. I know gross. Used this stuff after taking some naphtha, a credit card, and a toothbrush to the fingerboard and it feels brand new again.

This stuff is very easy to use, quick, and brings your rosewood fretboard back to a nice dark, rich finish.

Bought a used banjo that had dark finger marks in heavy use areas on the Rosewood fretboard. I cleaned it up with Naptha, rags and steel wool to get it clean and smooth then used the Colortone Fretboard Finishing Oil exactly as directed and it brought out the grain while also slightly darkening the rosewood beautifully. I added another coat the next day and it is beautiful with a smooth dark luster with grain pop. Excellent product.
