Masking For Tru-oil?

Recommended Posts

I am planning to finish the neck of my latest guitar with tru-oil, and the body with nitro. I was wondering how I should mask the part of the neck that will be glued into the body. Can I just use regular blue masking tape? Will the oil seep under it and mess up my glue joint?

I have used the blue masking tape, but I've had better results with pinstriping tape for the edge, and masking tape over it for more protection. You're going to inevitably get a tape ridge where the finish builds up against it, though. Unless you're really really good :D
