I have been watching vids and reading stuff all day!
even though I ordered a giant bottle or tru-oil now I am not sure since I have no idea about the pore filling satin spray. I was going to sand the headstock and back with 300-400-600 till it was all smooth. blow off all the dust and start with a light coat of tru-oil then every day let it harden and steel wool with 0000 before applying another thin coat till it built up to a gloss/satin look.
I was going to tape off the fretboard then when done either use this product http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Fretting...shing_Oil.html
or just a lemon oil or a fretboard cleaner/oil light on the fretboard.
now I am not sure if that stewmac stuff will make it too dark. I read some reviews and people were kinda mad it made their rosewood fretboard too dark.....although I dont think I would mind the fretboard being slightly darker then the rest of the neck. I will not tru-oil the fretboard. I dont think I can handle build up in the frets. ecspecially since warmoth necks once in a while need a slight fret level.
So someone give me some more info on the pores please! isnt sanding smooth and tru-oil enough? what else do I need to do to prep for this.
This is the first time I have ever done anything with wood and really know nothing about it! Thank you guys for the help!
