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.

Condition that fretboard and saddle

Works very well on rosewood soaks in nice but ebony? Not sure if I like the boiled linseed better I'll have to try both on two of my guitars so I can see a side by side. This stuff if left on too long gums up and has to be steel wooled off.

I've always used traditional oils to condition hardwood fretboards. After trying Stew-Mac's ColorTone Fretboard Finishing Oil I'll never use anything else.
ColorTone Fretboard Finishing Oil brings a fretboard back to a new like appearance and feel. I had planned on using it for my personal guitars and using traditional oils on customer's guitars. After trying it on my main stage guitars it's all I use now. This product is a vast improvement over traditional oils.

Customers love the way it feels on their guitars and comment on how "new" their guitar feels and plays. Of course I don't tell them the secret ingredient! I just let them think I've put the mojo on their guitar!

I used this on some guitars that were getting some discoloration within the grain and also the fretboard was only a nice solid dark color when it was just setup and had lemon oil on it fresh, but wore off after about a week. This product went on easy and my fretboard looks like its new and healthy. Just make sure you clean it well afterwards because it leaves a slight tacky feeling and it somehow got the back of the neck sticky, but it cleans right off.

Works Great!

This is perfect for any dark-colored wood! It adds a nice deeper-color and restores dried-out wood to like-new condition.

Fretboard oil

I was a little doubtful if the product was worth the money or just how good it might be. I have to say, I have eight guitars and I am quite happy with just how nice the boards now look and feel after using it. I would highly recommend the product. Used it also on my Epiphone SG with the faded wood finish, guitar looked awesome.

Seals the fretboard

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This product has solids in it, and thus leaves a hard seal over the surface of the fretboard. If this is what you are after, then this is a great product. Personally, I like to leave my fretboards unsealed to allow them to breath. I prefer a bore oil based product that doesn't contain solids.

All in all this is a great product if a sealed oil finish is what you are after.
