Dear Sheldon, the topic has already been trated. But honestly I would like a confirmation regarding WENGE fingerbgoard: I have already Dunlop 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil. Is it good for wenge FB? I understand it is better the 65-02 mentioned in tho other post, but can I use Dunlop 65 Ultimate Lemon Oil or You think it can damage the FB? In case You discourage me, I will buy the 65-02 (my local shop does not have...). thanks a lot! PS1: When R U going to update the site with your last "P" models? PS2: is it boiling in the pot some entirely new model? (not lefty versions, or 4 / 7 strings versions) Last question: in "standard" models You apply solidly proved recepies for woods combinations. The result, sonic wise, is predictable. IN Your PA, given that SKY IS THE LIMIT, how does it work? Did it happen that You build a PA that is not responsive as it should have because of the combination of woods? OK, You can avoid answering this... :-) Alberto

Caro Alberto... Warwick basses have used wenge on their fingerboards since time began, they have a "care" link on the internet on this page: http://www.warwick.de/media/manuals/Bas ... ual_EN.pdf and to get you to the point they recommend to use Beeswax (cera di api) as you can see herebelow. I have used it on my ABII when I used to have a wenge board (but recently swapped the neck for a roasted maple instead) and I can tell you that beeswax is indeed the best product for that type of timber because it doesn't grease things up, it doesn't stain either the board nor your fingers as it is clear - transparent and you only need to use a small amount on a dry cloth apply it on the board let it dry naturally within 10 minutes and then wipe off any excess that has not penetrated the wood. and that's all you need to do. From the Warwick website: [b:tr42h647]Tips for Fingerboard Care All fingerboards that come standard with Warwick basses are not lacquered and thus require a little maintenance once in a while to avoid getting rough or dull. To clean and protect the fingerboard use products specially made for this purpose and that are available at selected stores or specialist shops. Please refer to the manufacturer’s product information to achieve the desired result. You can also use the Warwick Beeswax for your fingerboard’s maintenance[/b:tr42h647]

[quote="AlbiMax":3a1dyffm]PS1: When R U going to update the site with your last "P" models?[/quote:3a1dyffm] As soon as we can. [quote="AlbiMax":3a1dyffm]PS2: is it boiling in the pot some entirely new model? (not lefty versions, or 4 / 7 strings versions)[/quote:3a1dyffm] There's always something boiling. Nothing we are ready to release details on yet though. [quote="AlbiMax"] Last question: in "standard" models You apply solidly proved recepies for woods combinations.

If not we won't use them. So even though the sky is the limit. There are limits to what we'll call "sky".

Thank You very much for the answers! As I understand, lemon oil works alike the Dunlop 65-01 cleaner, that is it helps cleaning the FB but not hydratating it. Is the 65-02 deep conditioner providing hydratation and a barrier against humidity afterwards on wengè fretboards? Dear Sheldon, I was betting on such answer regarding wood combinations on Primas! Did You ever consider an Aluminium top or Carbon fiber top for increasing stiffness? Maybe a Carbon Fiber BOTTOM could be better: scratch proof against belts, leaving the freedom of the beautiful wood tops. I am just thinking at, let's say, high volume... Parker Fly guitar had CF outer shell in the neck, isn't it? Salutoni a tutti!
