Probably the product that you will use the most is the RIC cloth that came with your guitar.
If you wipe it down after each use it will stay clean and shiny.

For the fretboard, I use LEM-Oil, I spray a small piece of cloth with LEM-OI and wipe the strings and fretboard, I use it very sparingly, I use it before and after playing, it makes the string last longer, and you also can play better, especially if you slide or drag passing chords. The fretboard is really protected by the factory finish, but the LEM -OIl will keep it clean and fast.

Yes you can polish it, but only occasionally and sparingly. Only polish it after you have perfectly cleaned it, Don't put it straight back in it case after a polish, Leave it out for a 1/2 and re-buff it with a fresh cloth, then put it back in it case.

Never use a polish that contains silicone

I totally agree with wiping the neck, and body with the supplied Ric cloth. I use the Ric cloth also on the fretboard.

I too use the Ric cloth on my 4003's and they stay nice and shiny. Also the fretboard and strings get a wipe over as well,in fact the whole bass. Also whenever the cleaning cloth has got old,they are easy to replace and are cheap enough. :D :D
