Help: Using Lemon Oil on JP15 Roasted Maple fretboards

Hey Guys,

Long time no see!

First of all, I am not trying to advertise other products here, so please pardon me for posting questions about non EBMM products. I have going absolutely nuts about this 😀 but I cannot seem to find a definitive answer anywhere.

My JP15’s fretboard (roasted maple) has been going a bit dry of late, which is probably due to the hot and dry weather where I live in. I have always been wondering whether I can use the ‘Jim Dunlop 65 Lemon Oil’ (Which I have and use on my other ) on the fretboard to give it some life back. But it says on the back – ‘not to be used on Maple fretboards’. I understand it could probably mean on the finished maple necks, but I am confused. I know I can use the wonder wipes which are a little hard to find here, I have placed an order for a few which would take a while to arrive.

I regularly use the lemon oil on my JP6 (stealth black), and it seems to work really well.

If any one could throw any light on this, I’d greatly appreciate it. More on the fact that if some one has used it and can let me know it’s perfectly safe 😀

Also, pardon me for posting about a question which has been asked a few times, I found other recommendations, but not a yes/no about this product as such.

Please let me know your thoughts. Seeking help! Thanks!
