Here are the before and after pics of my Fender acoustic, sorry it took so long.

This is what it looked like when I took it out of its case, and I’m ashamed I let this happen. My mom (who recently passed) went and bought this for me without my knowledge. One day I had a big ole Fender box on my back doorsteps.

She was so worried she bought something I wouldn’t like, or that it was not good,etc... I’ll cherish this guitar till the day I go to join her.

Then after using a very small amount of the F-One

^^^ (alternative to quoting the prior post :p )

Based on your pics, that F-One stuff does look impressive. Well, there's only one way to be certain (try it personally) - just added a bottle to my Amazon cart.

In all honesty, I had a felling it would help, but not so dramatically. I heard a few people say there was an off putting smell after application.

What little odor (and I mean very little) I may be smelling was gone after 24hours of doing the rosewood neck on my 60s CV

Hope you have similar results Jon!

I’m curious if any of the color or other residue comes off on the new strings or discolors the new strings following the fretboard treatment.

Bill, tgo

So far the new strings I put on the 60s CV which was treated with the F-One on the 28th look and feel fine. I’ll update if I notice any negative changes.

I’m about to put a new set on the acoustic, which I’ll also keep an eye on for any issues.

I’ve used F-One for a couple years and there’s no leftover residue. A little goes a long way and I wipe clean any excess. Good to go!

The only thing I did different between the 60s CV and the acoustic, is I let the F-One sit about 5 min, before wiping the excess off ( which wasn’t much ) Before I went to bed last night I leaned over just to see if there was an odor, and there wasn’t.

I used about the same amount on both necks, a little really goes a long way. I have no doubt that 4oz bottle will last years.

I forgot to mention,
I also used q tips to get right up where the frets meet the fingerboard. I always wash my hands before playing, and wipe the strings and fingerboard off when I’m done. I was kinda surprised at the amount of gunk that came off.

I've never had residue with F-One. I did when I took my guitar to a Sam Ash "bring your guitar in for a free restringing and general cleanup" event before the 'rona hit. Whatever they used left all kinds of gunk on the strings (and my fingers).
