I removed the strings from my Ibanez Archtop to replace them with some new ones I wanted to try out. While they were off I took time to smooth the fretboard and frets with 0000 steel wool, then cleaned the fretboard with Naptha until I stopped getting black (probably dye) on the rag. Then I applied Howard's Feed n Polish and let it sit for the recommended time of 20 minutes. I then removed the excess and using a clean microfiber cloth buffed it. Installed the new strings and bends are smooth now. Thank you Funky for your suggestion! I am so far very happy with the results.

I've been a fan. I seem to recall reading that the company owner of Howard's Wax and Feed is a guitarist and uses his product on his guitars. IF I recall he leaves it on for something like 4 hours, but don't quote me on that.
