What type of maintenance should I do on my SR4005E's fretboard? I believe it is wenge. Is an occasional application of Dunlop 65 Lemon Oil a good idea? Thanks.

Eleven days and no response? Doesn't anyone from Ibanez monitor these boards?

Yes,

I do monitor these boards from time to time, but I'm not on here as much as I used to be. I must have missed this post originally!Doh

I'd follow a guide like this one from the internet. There are a few different guides to help in knowing why and how to condition the fretboard.

The fretboard itself can be compared to rosewood. the Wenge doesn't require any kind of different care. I will say however, the back of the neck is finished in a satin poly coat and does not need to be treated.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your response. You mentioned a specific Internet guide, but didn't post a link.

Thanks,

Jon

I fixed the link above and underlined it. That is only one of the guides available. There are a lot more available as well:
