    I've been using Planet Waves Hydrate for a while now. No complaints, seems to do what it is supposed to.

    My PRS S2 Custom 24 has an ebony fretboard. I read somewhere that ebony fretboards need to be conditioned more often than Rosewood fretboards.

    1. What conditioner should I use on my ebony fretboard?
    2. How often should I use conditioner on the fretboard?
    3. Is F-One Oil a good product to use?

    I’ve never used a “conditioner” in 55 years.

    If a lacquer neck feels sticky, I used some FingerEase sprayed on a piece of cloth.

    Maple or ebony never seems to need anything but I have sometimes scraped the schmutz buildup off with a thumb nail.

    I don’t think ebony requires conditioning like Rosewood does. Ebony is a far more dense and tight grained wood.

    In my experience, it’s far less likely to absorb conditioner.

    F1 is a well regarded product. I use a cleaner and conditioner produced by Crimson in UK.

    Let us know how you get on.
