So.. I want to give complete maintenance to all parts of my guitar by myself.
Well the other day I bought something to clean my guitar neck it was Dunlop fingerboard cleaner & prep.
I didn't understood well the tutorials and apparently I applied it wrong.
I sprayed the guitar neck and let it there 3 minutes then cleaned it with clothes. When cleaning it I did vertical movements.
The correct way to apply it is spraying the cleaner on the clothes and then remove the dirt horizontally right??
Well after doing this, all the edges of the fins were kinda different and more black, like in the picture is it damaged?:
Also it caused some cracks like this, is it damaged?
Do you think frets like this should be given maintenance?
Some of the wood (underneath the fretboard) is kinda blue and other is blue with a lot of points, is it normal?
This thing is blackened should I do something?
Those screws maintain the neck and the body of the guitar joined right? So it is a bad idea to unscrew them to clean inside?
First of all, it didn't cause the cracks in the fretboard or ruin the fins, the cleaner settled into the cracks and spaces that were already there, making them more noticeable. This will probably disappear over time. The back of the neck also looks normal, just finish cleaning the entire neck and it will most likely even itself out. Lastly, removing the neck screws is completely unnecessary...there is no reason to clean "inside." Just wipe the neck plate clean if you want.
