    Been using Old English on all of my guitar fingerboards since the late 60's.

    Have an old Epiphine Casio, that I purchased used in about 1973, and I've only used Old English on it. A couple of years ago, I must have applied too much and didn't get it all wiped off because a couple of fretboard makers started to lift and needed to be reglued.

    So, I have to ask, what damage does Old English cause?
    He is referring to lemon juice / food products
    citric acid

      Shouldn't cause any. But Old English doesn't contain any actual lemon oil. https://www.ewg.org/guides/cleaners/...rePolishLemon/
