Need help on finishing my neck
I sanded the clear coat off the back of my Js1000 neck. I didnt know at the time it was a bad idea, but what I was doing was trying to remove the YELLOW SHEEN that it had. I sanded it down to a nice pale maple look, but now the neck is unfinished. I talked to a tech and he said I should apply some tung oil to it 2 times per year. I was wondering if there is a finish I can apply to the back of the maple neck that will seal it for good, and still retain the pale maple look, kinda like the factory ibanez finish. According to the tech, tung oil has a natural yellow sheen to it. Although this is a cosmetic issue, I still do not want to remove the neck 2 times a year just to finish it. Is there any other way to get the neck coated like the ibanez factory pristige ones?
