Easy cheese on the bore oil. Hit it like your date on prom night.

Don't oil the fret board much at all... but if I perceive a need to... I use olive oil. Works pretty good for ebony and mahogany -- IMHO.

I'll be getting my first maple fingerboard guitar this coming Tuesday...

I use the gibson pump/spray stuff.

Works great.

...only it it's looking ragged, worn, ...dryed out, etc...

course a little preventative maintenance never hurt anything.

use a small amount of olive oil. not only does it feed the wood but its amazing at getting all the dirt off your neck!! put a small bit on a flannel, rub it on so the whole neck is covered and leave it for 15 minutes, when you whipe it off with a dry clean flannel your neck will come out perfect. :D

Rosewood is a nice oily wood anyway, so you're probably fine with lemon oil.
