If you are looking to turn your ’03 into a ’63, or your R9 into a ’59, Montypresso is the perfect solution. Applying it to open-grained woods darkens and relics the lightest shades of grain while giving a smooth, gloriously grubby finish, and let’s be honest who doesn’t like one of those.

Montypresso has two main applications, the first, when applied to an open grain fingerboard, made from such fine timbers as rosewood or pao ferro, it will darken the wood to the rich, shade of golden-era Brazilian rosewood with the look and feel of a well-played board. The second is to give the open grain on the back of a guitar neck the appearance of an instrument that has seen many a sweaty palm and the open, worn areas of a body the grubbiest of hues.

Instrument Food is the perfect solution for conditioning fingerboards made from rosewood, ebony, or any open grain wood. These woods are always at the mercy of the elements, they absorb the dirt and sweat from your hands and will dry out over time, leading to cracking and permanent damage to your guitar neck.

Monty’s Instrument Food fends this off by penetrating the bare wood and with its magic formula, feeding it with all kind of glorious, natural deliciousness, while at the same time sealing in that goodness to give the wood a longer life, smooth feel and a wonderful lustre.

Unlike most ‘lemon’ oils, Monty’s Instrument Food is all-natural and doesn’t contain any solvents. While solvents are effective at cleaning fretboards, they also dry them out leading to unpleasant, permanent problems if used in conditioners.

We use it on every open guitar fingerboard that comes across our bench, applying it after cleaning and before buffing.

It is also great for many other luthier jobs, sealing and conditioning any type of open-grained wood, it is great on the back of stripped guitar necks, giving them a glassy smoothness, lubricating screw heads to preserve the thread and avoid stripping, lubricating guitar nuts for the perfect setup and we have even used it to coat entire unfinished guitar bodies, sealing them while still allowing the wood to breathe.

Monty’s Instrument Food is also available in a Monty’s coffee mug, perfect for techs, luthiers, or anybody doing seriously industrial amounts of tinkering. We have these mugs of Instrument Food on all our own workbenches and, with almost six times as much Instrument Food as a regular tin, they last for ages.
