Howdy,

I found the answer in the Rickenbacker Manual. Here it is.....
Oil Finish Maintenance
Beyond routine cleaning, the best way to maintain a hand rubbed oil finish (as seen on Rickenbacker Models 650D, 650S, and some older models), is with Tung oil and
a 3M Scotch-Brite™ Ultra Fine Hand Pad (#7448.)
Using small amounts of oil at a time, wipe down the instrument until there is a relatively uniform coating on the surface of the guitar. Going with the wood grain, use the Scotch-Brite™ pad to lightly sand the surface until it begins to take on its original silky smooth feel. Before setting the instrument aside to dry, use a clean, lint free cloth to wipe down any excess oil or grit. Allow 8 – 12 hours for proper
drying. This procedure can also be performed using ultra fine, light or gray
colored sandpaper. A minimum grade of 1200 should be used to avoid damaging the surface of the wood. It is also important to avoid black sandpaper, as the residue is
likely to stain the instrument as the oil sets in. Use of steel wool is not recommended as the ferrous residue can cling to pickups. Particles of this residue can also become suspended in the finish and rust over time.
