Thumbs up

I've got to lend my voice to the chorus of satisfied customers. Searching for a fingerboard cleaner suggestion, I stumbled across this thread earlier this week and shot Tim a PM and a paypal payment for a large tin.

Less than a week later, I've received the conditioner and have applied three coats to my 39 Kalamazoo archtop. I don't have a before shot of the bridge (beyond the 4 year old NGD post here), but the results are night and day in both appearance and feel.

The whole process could not have been easier, aside from the elbow grease necessary to effectively get the gunk off with the steel wool step.

Before:





After (didn't think to photograph before finishing restringing):





Full shot:


Glad I went for the large, will apply to the rest of the herd as string changes are made. None needed it more than this one, but I'm glad to have it on hand - great product! Thanks!

Thanks for your post @JoeYouDon't and I am happy to see how effective it was to revive your much loved FB. Is your guitar a vintage one or a modern reproduction? I wonder if your FB is perhaps dyed maple or another hardwood instead of ebony? I have not ever seen ebony with such strong cross grain silking before which leads me to question its species.

It's a vintage 1939, so should be brazillian rosewood, but Gibson wasn't exactly precise or consistent with building materials - possible it's stained maple, I guess. Whatever it is, it looks and feels better now!
