    Hey guys. I'm throwing around the idea of a warmoth build. I played a stingray today and absolutely loved the oil and wax neck. I was wondering if anyone here has done an unfinished warmoth all maple neck (neck and fretboard) with tru oil and wax to make it feel like a musicman. Do you oil and wax the fretboard as well or just oil? How has the stability been if you've done it? Thanks!

    Funny.....I am right in the middle of my 3rd warmoth neck project. Did/doing all with tru oil. It is my favorite product to use due to its ease. No stability issues an I live in the wet northwest just a few miles from the warmoth factory.

    I'm not an expert, but my bass friends end up buying me out of them due to the great feel, stability with the steel rods and frets, and the best part....sound!

    Have fun!

    BTW ......I haven't tried using wax. A buffed out tru oil finish is where I left mine. I don't know much about the wax process....might be really good.
