Teak oil on maple?

    I recently bought some teak oil to finish a koa/mahogany body, and was wondering if it would be remotely suitable for a flatsawn maple neck as well. I'm mainly worried about moisture protection, but appearance is another consideration.

    So... could the oil be used?
    And if not, would a satin laquer finish on the neck look too distinct from the oil finish on the body? What other finishes might you recommend?
