    Should be fine. Your neck may look unfinished, but there's probably a sealer and most likely a tung oil finish on it. Otherwise, you'd run into serious neck problems if the neck had absolutely no finish on it.

    They are finished with oil and gunstock and something. I wouldnt use lemon oil on a maple fingerboard. Just a damp rag.

    I didn't know that would cause a problem...Thanks for correcting me. I guess I have to stop doing that to my basses!
