Which cleaner for fretboard of 2007 Silhouette Special?(Other then Murphy's oil soap)
Recently I finally pulled the trigger on my first MIA guitar , a used Silhouette Special was on sale at a good price nearby.
Had been stalking Silhouette Specials for a while and am delighted with it. She’s special no doubt !
The previous user sure did play it alot as the fretboard is pretty dirty, changing strings now so going to clean fingerboard aswell… but what cleaner to use?
Just word of warning, we’re in Ireland here so don’t have access to the oft quoted Murphy’s oil soap….despite the product’s name being Irish…must be Murphy’s Law eh?
I guess the real question is what type of finish is on the fingerboard. Know there’s gunstock oil on the neck, but don’t know if it’s the same on the fretboard…Couldn’t find any definitive answer on Ernie Ball’s literature/Specs for the SS.
After that it’s just question of what cleaner would be best for the finish.
Would really appreciate your help on this, haven’t been able to find definitive answer on the forums. Also appreciate that alot of players like to leave the Maple dirty… Different strokes for different folks!
BTW Do have access to Zippo lighter fluid and Sugar Soap.
Here she is anyway , can take up close photos of fretboard and upload if it helps 🙂
