I think I am correct in saying that my Cutlass, JP6 and American Strat deluxe all have rosewood fretboards – please see pictures. The latter two’s fretboards seem as smooth as silk to me.
What would your diagnosis be? Is it just the Cutlass has a different feel and it is a case of getting used to it? Or is there oil that is worth trying? It is not a big deal, just trying to get the new guitar exactly the way I like it!
