Hey y'all, I recently purchased a Classic S Antique and I love everything about it except it has a very light rosewood fretboard. I spoke with Ricardo who suggested bore oil so I gave that a try along with Fret Doctor and it didn't darken it at all. Anyone know if they can darken it somehow?

It will oxidize and darken over time. Enjoy playing it and let it age.

It will oxidize and darken over time, just enjoy playing it and let it happen naturally

Do you happen to have a picture of the fretboard?

Nonconsensus opinion, maybe, but I know a ton of guys who want their fretboards dark and almost ebony-colored, and I think a lighter, warmer, redder rosewood fretboard looks way better.
