    I haven't ever owned a Warmoth neck, but their reputation is good all around.

    I bought an AllParts neck for my custom Tele last year, and it's awesome.

    Warmoth necks are outstanding, I have had to use several over the last ten years and I havn't had a problem with one of them.

    While we're at it, can anyone help me with tips for finishing the neck with tung oil and/or liquid wax? Thanks.

    Well, first Warmoth will not ship you a real unfinished neck, all the necks that leave the building will have a light sealer coat on them even though they tell you they won't and then they still won't warrenty them unless they put the amount of finish they want on them.
    So with all that said the tung oil really won't seep in like it should cause the neck already has a light finish on it, but all you have to do (and people love to make Rocket science out of oiling a neck ) is pour some Tung oil in your hand or on a clean towel and rub it in on the *back* of the neck liberally,
    wait 15- 30 minutes and wipe the excess off. That's *all* there is to it,
    you can do that as many times as you like during the year but usually if you live where you have real seasons or it's real wet you'll wanna do it at every season change, here in Az once a year is more than enough.

    Cool. Sounds like something I can actually handle. I don't know why I'm so paranoid about doing the smallest repairs or adjustment. I even took a tutorial on it last summer and it still freaks me out.

    Anyway, the neck will be here in about a month or so. I'll report back. Thanks for your help.

    One thing to consider is Birchwood/Casey (Tru-Oil) gunstock finish. You should be able to find it at a gun shop or a sporting goods store. I have used this product on Warmoth necks before and they come out very nice. This is the same stuff Ernie Ball used on the EVH necks and still uses on the Axis. If you are familiar with those necks, thats what it will look like when finished.

    Thanks! Everything turned out great--which of course is always a gamble when custom assembling a guitar. The intonation and action took a while to get set; I tried a Floyd Rose string retainer bar at first because I thought it would "look cool." Uh... oops. It looked out of place and didn't balance the tension correctly. So there's just two simple graphite string trees now.

    I detailed all of the parts on my website: http://www.andrewthomas.net/archives/00000068.html

    I did the Tru-Oil on my Tele (mentioned above). I was able to get the neck unfinished from AllParts and wanted to keep it as similar to my Wolfgang necks as I could.

    Cool! Thanks to you, Filthy and everyone else for the tips. They're much appreciated. I'm definitely going with the tru oil and I'll let you know how it works out/post pcis. I got the 24 3/4, short scale tele neck. I'm interested to see how that works out on a tele. I don't have huge hands, so the short-scale necks are great for me.

    While were at it, does anyone know anything or have any tips about antiquing/distressing a guitar finish? It might sound cheesy, but I want this thing to look authenticallk beat-up or, as the Hanson brothers said in Slapshot, when they were beating up the bus, "makin' it look mean!".

    Yup... play it a LOT! Night and day, for practice, at gigs, outside, inside... while wearing a hat, next to your cat, with your friend Pat, on the can, with that guy Stan, while coming up with your master plan, while getting a tan, in front of a fan, while working for the man, and with a frying pan.

    The best hack marks on a guitar are the earned ones!

    are you talking about the neck or the whole guitar itself ?
    if you mean the guitar body also it depends on the finish that's already on it
    if it's the thick poly stuff then relicing it would not look so good, if it's a thin or weak finish like the old nitro than I can tell you all kinds of stuff since I have done so many relic SRV's
    PM me and we'll go over it.
