Glue Clean Up When Fretting

Recommended Posts

If you're going to CA your frets in then put several treatments of tung oil on first to seal the surface. Be sure it has dried overnight. Use something pointed to "wick" some CA in at the ends so it doesn't come out on the surface. If you get some on the fingerboard then use acetone to clean it up. They make CA remover, but acetone works well too.

Alternatively, don't get CA on the fretboard face!

I apply a small drop to each fret-end, from the back, before trimming the overhang. Catch any that gets on the fretboard face with a rag dampened with acetone - it comes off a treat if you get it whilst it's wet, but once it's dried I've found scraping it back to wood the only way to get rid of it.
