    Here's the oiled neck secret, use teak oil (it isn't sticky when it dries). It penetrates, seals and preserves the wood (minimizing warpage). Apply and even coat and let it dry overnight. Once dry just hand buff it down with a rag and apply again two or three more times allowing it to dry between coats. Once dry it will hand buff to a velvet feel and not be sticky.

    BTW, Nice guitars guys!

    Man, those are cool! I was tossing around an idea for a custom bass using an SG style body, a headless neck with a Steinberger bridge, and some Bartolini pickups. Iíve got a Spirit/Steinberger 5 string Iíve used as my main guitar for about 20 years; I love that thing.

    Shop is building a Studebaker Truck. It is the most beautiful build I have seen in a long time. Thought I would build a guitar to match it.

    Well the Boss has given me a green light for a new Guitar (can you ever have too many?)-, so, I'm on the hunt for a new (or, used) Les Paul-
    I'm drawn to the 2016 Traditional T (in "Desert Burst ("it's lighter), or, the Slash Model in "November Burst" (2020)-anybody have thoughts on a new or as new Les Paul?

    I have a Strat, a Telecaster, and a Martin D-35. I am building the Les Paul kit. The kits are very cheap. Certainly if I could afford it I would go after one of the Custom shop Les Paul Custom Access models though the 1958 reissue Gold top tugs at my heart

    Where have you been searching so far? Have you checked Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace? both of those places you can find someone who started a project and then gave up.. you could make your own copy.?.?.? and then there's the whole internet! Let you fingers do the walking LOL. Google can be your friend at times like this.

    Thanks guys, we are in the "getting to know you" phase, but so far she's (why are our Guitars always named after women?) a seductress-
    It is a 2020 Les Paul Slash Model, and the pickups have been changed to Seymour Duncan Alanci Pro's-I am a happy camper!

    Because if you treat them right, play with them gently, they'll repay you with hours of pleasure.
