This stuff is the greatest product since sliced bread. I have now used this lemon oil on a wide variety of fretboards and bridges (guitars/resonators/mandolin) and it works fantastic. Refreshes the oils and makes the wood look better and play better.

Two words of caution, however: (1) Do not use on maple boards; and (2) only apply twice a year otherwise your frets could pop out.

      Good product but PLEASE do NOT squeeze the bottle too hard when trying to start the oil flowing through the felt-tipped top. The top might go rocketing across the room leaving a trail of greasy, citrus mess across your ottoman and carpet ...err, not that that happened to me, I'm not that stupid :o(

            Comments about Dunlop Fretboard 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil:

            Using this for the first time was very frustrating. I couldn't get any oil to come out of the applicator. Only tiny amounts were coming. I squeezed and squeezed until it blew open, dumping oil all over my guitar and carpet, also splattering on the walls. However, it did clean and darken my rosewood fretboard very well. I never realized how nasty it was until I looked at the rag. Just be careful when trying to wick the applicator, don't know if I just got a wierd one or what. I spent prolly 5 minutes of lightly squeezing that bottle to try and get it to wick.. then i tried a little harder, big mistake oops.

            Comments about Dunlop Fretboard 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil:

            Overall, this is a very good product and easy to apply. There are some vids on YouTube and it sounds like a lot of people were happy too.
            This works great on my Black Strat, as I was a little concerned about what to use on the fretboard. I read the reviews here and ordered a bottle. Couldn't be happier. Just make sure you use an extremely soft cloth. Preferably, an old diaper, but hey those are hard to find these days...
            No issues here. Just take your time when using the product.
            Great value for what it does.

            Comments about Dunlop Fretboard 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil:

            I should have read (and heeded) the advice of previous reviewers Go White Sox! and Luke regarding the applicator tip. Managed to bathe myself, the guitar, kitchen table, kitchen floor, and couple magazines in about half the bottle of this stuff when the tip rocketed out of the bottle. Do yourself a favor and take a pair of slip-joint pliers, twist that sucker out of there (carefully), and throw it in the trash. That leaves you free to dip q-tips in the bottle or put some on a cloth easily. Speaking of which, try to avoid paper towels or anything else that might generate lint/fibers. Synthetic gun-cleaning patches work well and are a good size for the task. Aside from my choice expletives for the applicator tip, the product works as intended.

            Works just fine. Cleaned off my rosewood fretboard and really made it look great. Just take care to use it as directed - a little goes a long way. Considering that this bottle should last for years, it's a great value.

            Comments about Dunlop Fretboard 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil:

            If you've never used a lemon oil on your fretboard, do yourself a favor, and add this to your next order. Cleans and conditions verrrry well. Very nice applicator on bottle. And a little bit really does go a long way, so you won't run out anytime soon.For 5 bucks, you won't find something comparable for much cheaper. Does a nice job on rosewood bridges too.

            Comments about Dunlop Fretboard 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil:

            Absolute best way to contain, and use lemon oil on the fretboard.
            I recently got a bottle of Fretboard 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil for my guitars. I wish I'd discovered this product a long time ago. So far, I've cleaned and restrung 4 guitars with it. Each one smells and plays like new again. I especially like the built in applicator, and the lemon smell eliminates the yucky one from previous frequent playing very well. Perfect product for what used to be a thankless job.
            Top quality, and very easy to use. Just remember that cotton plug in the top doesn't come out. Just shake the bottle and roll the plug over the surface of the fretboard until lemon oil starts filtering through.
            Every guitar player needs a bottle of this. Period.

            Restores fretboard to looking like new.
            I have been using this lemon oil on my rosewood / ebony fretboard for some time now and this wasn't my first bottle. This stuff work fantastic and restores the fretboard to almost new condition, or it looks new anyways. Great maintenance type accessory for your guitars, use it every time you change out strings. The only problem with it can see is that the applicator pad takes a while to get wet enough to apply it.

                Comments about Dunlop Fretboard 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil:

                Dunlop 65 is a very good oil for breaking in new fret boards or restoring older dried out ones. There's some confusion however in regards to the applicator tip. First, it's not a felt tip as described by many reviewers, like you would find in a felt tip pen. That's what I was hoping it would be, but it's not that. It's a mostly hard cotton-ish plug that takes up the whole 1/2 inch opening of the bottle. I'm with the the pry it out and toss it out crowd. Use the gun cleaning swabs and q-tips to get in tight to the fret wires and it's as good as gold. All guitars will need this treatment, new or old, during their life. Perhaps once or thrice a year depending on your climate.

                              I needed to resting my guitar so I decided to clean the fretboard. I followed the instructions and it removed the gunk from my rosewood fretboard easily.

                              To get the lemon oil started, just dab the applicator tip on a rag a few times. Apply the lemon oil on your fretborad, let it sit a minute or two, wipe off with a clean rag and the fretboard looks like new.

                                  Excellent lemon oil product from Dunlop! Everything I wanted in a product as such. I de-strung my Gibson and applied the oil via the small bottle's felt-tipped lid and let it soak in before using a paper towel to rub away the excess and grime. My only gripe is that I was imagining a bottle that one could squirt out the oil onto a rag, but the felt tip did catch me by suprise. It just grabs all the grime instead of a paper towel on first application. SO RUB LIGHTLY WITH THE TIP WHEN APPLYING! ...And just give a little elbow grease to the paper towel or rag.
                                  The oil stays in the fretboard for just about 2-3 weeks (average true life of strings) if you play everyday and are a string bender in playing style.
                                  Overall - Good product, nice light lemon scent (not overbearing!) and stays on like an oil should. No greasy "sillycone" here!

                                      what can i write this is ok product it makes fretboard looks better and cleaner.

                                      Product description should be more accurate this lemon oil can not be used on a maple fretboards.

                                          This is something every guitar player should be doing. It extends the life of the fretboard and keeps it in good condition. I apply every time I change my strings if not in a hurry. I let it sit for a few minutes and then wipe off the excess. This is a great product and good value as it last quite a while. Buy it and rock on!
