White Summer Posted July 31, 2007 Report Share Posted July 31, 2007 hey i was wondering how i could make my neck both look good like its finished, but be able to play like its unfinished. i am using a rosewood fingerboard (aluminum inlays) with a cherry neck. i would like the neck unfinished for speed, but i havent even played it yet and it is grey with dirt. also, my fingerboard looks cool watered, but i dont want to finish that either. is there anyway i can combine speed and aesthetics? ive heard that rubbing tung oil into the rosewood and then rubbing with steel wool takes care of the fingerboard but im not sure. and if i dont fininsh the neck, how will i flawlessly transition the finish of the headstock with the raw wood of the neck? any help appreciated.
