    They had been my go-to for some time, but I have found them harder to deal with in recent years. They have shifted largely to O.E.M. work, discontinued products and options (including ebony boards – WTF?), stopped doing so much custom work, etc.

    Now, I try to get what I need at Guitar Mill, and if I can't, then I go to Musikraft. That means all bass necks I get come from Musikraft, as Guitar Mill does not make them. I actually have a single-piece maple neck on order from Musikraft as I type...but three guitar necks on order from Guitar Mill. All would be from Guitar Mill if they made bass necks.

    So on Musikraft's site they say they no longer do full lacquer finishing, but they still offer aged oil finishing with two coats of clear oil handrubbed over that. Will a neck finished that way need to be further sealed after it's delivered to me?

    I had gotten a couple of USACG necks that arrived noticeably larger than specified. So I just got a Musikraft neck (arrived about a month ago). Size is spot on and the thin lacquer sealer feels great. I have no plan to add more finish, but I wouldn't know what to add if I did. The website interface isn't super satisfying, but it got the job done.

    I got the thin lacquer sealer on my first 2 necks and finished with several coats of clear lacquer aerosols from stew mac. Started with tinted clear to get desired color then finished with regular clear. Came out great.

    Also I got both necks with holes drilled and fitted to Warmoth bodies with holes also predrilled and the fit was perfect. Better than I have see on Fender factory quitars which I don't quite understand.

    I used pure tung oil. Takes a while to fully dry but feels really nice.

    checked Guitar Mill website, apparently a neck with all my fav options, is actually more expensive than a Musikraft neck with the same specs (SS frets, compound radius). $564 vs $380. Is it normal or am I missing smth?

    What specs are you talking about? Guitar Mill is a bit pricier, but usually not $180 pricier.
