Neck/fretboard finish for roasted maple

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am looking for products to apply to my neck and fretboard (both roasted maple) to get a look semi-glossy look like strandberg guitars for example. In the past I used tru oil for the neck and had good experiences with this. Would you also apply tru oil or a comparable product to the fretboard (roasted maple, too)?

Tru Oil and the likes work well on roasted wood, although I've only used it for Alder. On one body I used Osmocolor clear wax, on another I used Crimson Guitar Finishing Oil which apparently is quite similar to Tru Oil - which in turns is an old recipe similar to this: https://thewoodwhisperer.com/articles/make-your-own-oil-varnish-blend/
