    Hi,
    I recently got a mayones duvell and i don't know how to clean it properly.
    How should i clean the wenge/bubinga neck?
    And how often should i oil the ebony fretboard?

    On my other guitars there is somthing green at the fret and and i don't want that to happen to my Mayones

    I'll add some pics so you can see

    The green on frets is usually oxidation, which I've never seen on SS frets.

    I have a wenge neck, I really never have to clean it, it's my favorite by far for feels.

    The ebony fretboard doesn't need oiling, except to clean, so oil to wipe, as often as you want, but I do it on all guitars when I change strings.

    You only typically have to oil an ebony board once or twice a year, depending on your climate. For the neck, just wipe it down with a lint-free cloth. Same for the body. The body, top, and neck on the Duvell is actually finished in a matte clear coat. It's not bare wood.
