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.

Glossy fretboard, smells a bit of seaweed

By

Verified Buyer


The fretboard looks pretty good, and modestly darker, after application. It is more of a finish than what is commonly sold as "Lemon Oil". The rosewood fretboard feels a little glossy. As others have said, there is an odor that smells to me like seaweed. A couple weeks later it's better, though my fingers do still pick up the smell when playing. Your mileage may vary. I am undecided on whether I will use it on my other guitars. :)

I bought this for my strat and it's worked great. I didn't get any overly foul smell from this. It left the fretboard dry, without any buildup around the frets.

Wow!

I have a 2017 Gibson Faded T Les Paul I bought used in 2018. I had never used any conditioner/finishing oil on it in all that time and I doubt the previous owner ever did. The lighter parts were beginning to really fade, almost looking gray. I used this once and it brought have the color and feel. I applied a second coat because it most likely had never been done. The bottle is big enough to last years. Lovin' this stuff.

So glad I found this

I have used this on all of my rosewood and ebony fretboards and it's my new favorite. Make sure to get enough oil on there to prevent splotches, and make sure to remove as much as possible during the final step. A second coat immediately after may be required for super dry fretboards.

Works well, easy to use

By

Verified Buyer


I'm very new to guitar making, so I don't have a lot of experience with this kind of wood treatment. It seems to do a really nice job of bringing a good shine, and it's really easy to work with.
