Or dishwashing liquid
Let's not forget Rickenbacker's finished Rosewood fretboards.
DO NOT use Lemon Pledge!
I did use Raw Linseed Oil on my 5422TG and a couple other Gretsches.
Downside is the length of time for this process to be done correctly, compaired to using Boiled Linseed Oil.
But I'm retired, have more guitars than I need or deserve, so the 5422 spent over a year curing out on a guitar wall hanger unstrung.
Gave the board a quick clean up with F-One, and strung it up with 10's. No truss adjustment needed.
Great feel and it's a great player.
1) RLO, applied correctly, is a good option with no downsides. Very nice "finish."
Applied incorrectly, you'll have another internet horror story to share!
2) The 5422 is a solid and stable guitar. Quality build with quality wood. Over a year just hanging on the wall with no strings. No neck adjustment needed. Stable guitar!
Bottom line, try and keep your fretboard clean, and give it a treatment of whatever, and it'll feel and look good for a long time.
Never knew that much about Rickenbacker, thanks for the knowledge!
