Warmoth says you don’t have to seal them. What do you guys do, if anything?

I have a lightly roasted Musikraft that I sprayed with a can of Stew Mac nitro. It really brought out the flame in the maple. I know a lot of people leave it raw, but I love the nitro finish on this neck.

I’m thinking the same thing. It would bring the grain out more. I’m thinking tung oil.

It’s a nice neck.

Tung oil or Danish oil works great on roasted maple--especially if you like the feel of "raw" wood.

Wipe it on wet, leave it for 10 minutes, and wipe it dry with paper towels. The more iterations of the wipe-on/wipe-off you do, the slicker it will feel.

I don’t have one myself but I put one a Tele for a friend. Warmoth roasted maple with rosewood fretboard. No finish and it’s held up fine for about a year. It also smells like pancakes still, a finish might seal that in.

Based on the GOTD thread you won’t be able to play it enough to need a finish:-)

LOL

What are you saying??

I applied tung oil. It looks great. It almost looks like walnut.

Peegoo has the method. If you guys haven't tried it, it's a great feel.

I also use 1200 to 1500 grit paper to oil sand the neck. So smooth.

I have several and have left them bare. I like the feel and the look, but I can imagine that Minwax's Wipe On Poly would also look great with providing an amber hue.

I’ve used minwax wipe on poly although not on a neck.

It’s easy and the result looks great.

I used it on a fir dining table bench I built for a friend.

Sorry Leftee, smells like maple syrup, not quite pancakes. I’m guessing that was the question.

I didn’t sniff this neck so I missed out.

This is going on that spaulted body. I doubled down again. What the hell.

I should have it done Tues. Waiting on the last parts.
