Any ideas on how I should treat a rosewood fretboard? Kris - what do you use on your parker guitar to make it look so nice?

Tip-ex

No really that's how I make the dots biggrin.gif

The fretboard is in graphite so a cloth is enough. Unfortunately I don't know what your solution might be - I know some use lem-oil - but i dare not say it works with rosewood...

I use Teak Oil on my Fretboard - I put a fair dollop on a cloth and rub it in when I change strings.

I think the secret is not to put too much oil in the wood or the wood can swell slightly lifting the frets - so by all means rub a little in but dont let too much soak into the wood.

I always love the feel of new strings against a freshly oiled fretboard - I think guitars play much better when slightly slippery.

Look in your kitchen! Some virgin olive oil works good on rosewood fretboards. No joke!
