    Has anyone tried this on necks or bodies? It's new in the states, apparently.
    I've been getting great results with Danish Oil. I was told I couldn't get a sheen with it, but with several coats and wet sanding, I've got some shiny smooth as a baby's bottom necks.
    This stuff sounds interesting.

    Ill have to look into it. I prefer Tung oil. Finished my build with 4 coats of it but sanded down to take away some shine.

    Here is a mod list and some photos.

    I'm using a hard wax coating in my build at the moment. It's a gloss one.

    I've been very impressed with how hard it cures, four coats it the limit on the product I've been using.

    I've done one build with danish oil and one with a combination of osmo stain and then polyx hardwax oil.

    Suited my needs for something I could wipe on. I play the guitar daily and have done for some months now. No wear I've noticed where my arm rubs on it or against my jeans.

    Next build could go the same way- wondering if I can rub a burst with the tinted hardwax oils (available in sachets, handily)
