An oil dyed neck looks aged by itself, that’s one of the great advantages from this technique. Slightly discolorations and subtle dirt effects adds a real authentic used look, it‘ll never look perfect and clean. But that’s not to be confused with a lousy finish job. Oil dyeing is a lot more work compared to the usual lacquer spraying. But in the end you’ll get an unbelievable smooth neck. I‘m learning about this technique more with every neck. This time I like to top the smoothness of my burnished roasted maple neck (smooth like the skin of Margot Robbie ).
