RG520 / RG570 Neck Finish


Im using two Ibanez guitars. A RG570 from around 1992 an a RG520FSSOL from 2003.

Im wondering what the neck finishes on those two are because they seem rather different.

Im thinking the neck of the 570 may be oiled with tung
But about the 520 im unsure. I would think it may also be oiled (in fact the neck of the 570 is rather glossy while the 520-neck is matte - may just be some other kind of oil).

I read the neck of Ibanez guitars are laquered clear and sanded down almost back to bare wood; then Ive seen pics on the net refinishing a cracked neck with tung oil...

So which way are these necks are finished?
Any input would be appreciated.
