Fretboard cleanng and string removal

Recommended Posts

Hi again,

I have rcently noticed loads of gunk on my fretbaord and have decided to remove it and oil it.

Now, some questions. If I remove all the strings will I loose the tension in the FR (even If I block it with bottle caps or something) and the truss rob (especially concerned about this one)?

I don't think I can clean it properly with strings on and I don't know how to (and don't want to break things trying to) set it up.

Also, I was planning on giving it a going over with fine wire wool and then lemon oil - is this alright? (Its a rosewood board)

Any replys would be great,

Thanks in advance, Freestyler
