    Default Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil as a sealer coat?

    I've recently acquired an unfinished flame-maple neck. I plan to do the EBMM neck treatment to it: Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil, then gunstock wax.

    Here's my question: any idea whether i'll run into issues painting over the Tru-Oil when I finish the headstock? It is a shellac-based, hard-setting finish. I've read a couple of cases of people using Tru-Oil as their sealer-coat before paint.

    It does cure and harden, yes.

    I've no clue as to whether it's appropriate as a sealer coat.

    You know what sucks? I have all the supplies on hand and could have applied a light sealer coat on the headstock before I sent that thing off to you. (s6275 bought the neck from me, if anyone is confused.)

    Has the neck shown up yet? Did you get it mounted?
