I'm going to be building a bass in at school this year as a project (I made a thread for it http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=466073 ). I'm trying to collect the pieces and plan everything out before I begin building. So my question for the finish is: can I use Tru-Oil for finishing the whole bass, fingerboard included? I will be making a fretless with most likely a rock maple fingerboard with cherry lines. I am planning on using flatwounds for the bass when it is done. Will Tru-Oil work for the fingerboard? It would be easier if I could just order a jug of one finish to use on the whole bass and I don't mind having to apply an oil finish. I don't want to use an epoxy or poly finish unless I have to. So, will gunstock oil protect the fingerboard enough?
