    The gunstock oil you are referring to is most likely tru-oil. The instructions on the bottle are pretty self explanatory, it's one of the more foolproof finishes out there. And there has been plenty of discussion on it here already. I'm not very familiar with stingray necks, but I doubt tru-oil or any other oil finish will give you the same fee. I assume the stingray necks are either gloss or satin clearcoat.

    Here's some good tru oil info: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=145565&highlight=tru+oil
