Any tips on cleaning an unfinished maple fretboard and neck? I've only had the guitar for a few hours and it's covered in fingerprints. It's also quite disturbing to see a record of my playing over the course of a couple of hours...I actually don't need 16 of the 22 frets supplied...
Cheers
Sean.

Vintage Scott Ian style. /images/graemlins/smile.gif Although I think he had around 12 frets, then just had an empty fretboard from there on up with a "NOT" inlay.

Thanks Sully, I did look at your thread, my fretboard is almost white, which is why I'm so anxious about cleaning it. I'm considering getting the whole neck lacquered, I really can't cope with a dirty fretboard!
Cheers

Put a light matte satin finish on both the board and the neck. /images/graemlins/smile.gif

Actually had 14 frets....but congrats on even knowing Scott did this. I've had to explain where this came from regarding my Jackson Tele Click Here (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/MountainDog/JacksonTeleFull2.jpg) , as most people don't know about it.

Dude, only a few hours and it's covered with grime already? Wash your hands before playing! /images/graemlins/tongue.gif Seriously.
