    Anyone has a maple neck with tru oil finish? I plan to do it on my new build, but I never tried it on maple fingerboards. I'm not sure how good it is at protecting the wood from strings and fingers. I don't want it to look like this after a week :)

    It'll take longer than a week, but it will look like that a lot quicker than a poly finish. I'd TruOil it if it were mine.

    I do it on mine. No problems.
    I'm more concerned with how they feel and play than the way they look.
