  1. I'm fixing up my '86/87 American Kramer Baretta and am currently working on the neck. It's a maple neck that had significant dings in it, many running far too deep for me to consider sanding down (and I'd already steamed out as many of the dents as possible). I took care of the dents with CA (superglue) fills, sanded them down flush and continued to sand the whole neck up to 2000 grit. Now I'm in the finishing stage and am on coat two of what will probably be ten coats of Lombardi's 100% tung oil. I realize pure tung oil will take longer to dry than say Minwax's tung oil that has other compounds in it, and that's no problem, but I'm a little concerned about oil adhering to the CA for obvious reasons. I'd hate to have my seemingly perfectly-filled dents no longer flush with the finish after I've applied all ten layers of oil. It's obvious that CA won't be as porous (or porous at all) as maple or any other wood, but am I going to run into a problem here? The oil eventually dries over (or seeps into the wood surrounding) the CA, but it takes longer than the rest of the neck to dry. I don't care if the CA spots aren't quite as dark as the rest of the neck, but what I do care about is feel. Prior to the tung oil, the fills felt just as smooth as the rest of the neck. Do I have any reason to be concerned about this, or will the fills feel as smooth as the rest of the neck when I'm done? For what it's worth, after two coats, the CA spots are still flush--to the touch at least. Thanks for reading! This site has helped me out countless times.
