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.

It Stinks, But I Still Use This on Every (Rosewood/Ebony) Job Now.

Me, and my customers LOVE IT!!! Most instruments I see are neglected in the fretboard area. After performing all other fretboard work on the instrument, I clean it with lemon oil, then wipe that all off. The piesta resistance is applying 2 or 3 coats of this finish afterward. My customers are thrilled when I hand them back their precious instrument and they see how wonderful their fretboards and bridges look. Most see the difference right away w/o me having to explain it to them. And most players don't even realize that fretboard maintenance is necessary. They get an education as well as a beautiful looking instrument back.

Not bad,  but too dark

This product is easy to apply and gives a nice uniform finish. For me it's a bit too dark. I used this on an early 60's Harmony H165 after a refret and it made the nicely grained rosewood look very dark, almost like ebony. Not bad if that's what you want, but i prefer a more natural look for rosewood.

I applied this product to a new rosewood fretboard. It brought out some nice charactor of the wood. Nice product.

This stuff is without equal for re-newing rosewood fretboards.I got it specifically for an old mid-sixties Framus guitar and have used it on 4 others so far. As my unfinished fretboard guitars get re-strung they are getting the treatment with stuff. Really made that old board look good and enhances newer ones as well.

Throw away your lemon oils. This is the best there is. You will not go back to anything else once you've tried it. Thank you Stew Mac!

Magic in a bottle

I used it the first time on a fretboard I did some fretwork. It looked dry and the wood grain wasn't visible. Once I apply it according to the instructions the fretboard came to live nice color and the wood grain is noticeable again. I love this product so much that I have used on every new guitar I bought through the last couple of years. So I recommend it for new and old guitars.
