Do you guys HYDRATE your finger board?
I was talking with a luthior last week and he was setting up my bass with new strings and just a good check up. He showed me a clear box and with black ish brown ish dust in it. He said it was what he called finger board CHEESE! Yea from human skin all over the necks of guitars that he reconditions.. GROSS I know.
SO I go this stuff from PLANET WAVES called fingerboard conditioner. It reall cleans the fret board nice and makes the wood shiny. The first time I used it on my 30 year old Bass the stuff just soaked right in. It took like five applications to get it nice and soaked. This alone changed the wood enough to affect tuning. Pretty cool.
It is made out of wood after all!
Just wondering if any one else heard of this?
