Has anyone got pics of a roasted maple Musikraft neck finished with their tinted oil? How dark is it? Or get MJT nitro finish?

I’m looking at getting a Musikraft neck to go with my MJT nitro relic body. It’ll be a rosewood board, and just deciding on what finish to go with - I don’t want it too dark - I’m going with a 60’s theme.

I could have MK finish it with one of their oils which I have read fell very nice. Or, they can ship to MJT for a Nitro relic finish. Just keen to hear other people’s experiences with finishing a MK neck.

2 of my most favorite neck! Both are Musikraft. One is flame the other birdseye. The amount of figuring really affects the overall color. IME, more figure = darker overall appearance. YMMV

Don’t they say something on their website about the light or dark roasted necks will vary? I ordered mine I remember reading that.

I ordered a Musikraft neck and they did the aged oil thing. I got it sent to MJT anyway because unlike others I wanted it to be high gloss nitro. MJT did that for me but the fretboard on mine being maple looked like poop when I got it from MJT. Dirt and dust in the finish on the fretboard. The back looked great so if going with MJT and a rosewood board you’ll be okay.

I stripped it to bare wood then refinished it myself. They are not gold frets, just didn’t clean the nitro off. 2FBDA039-6C77-4267-93EA-CD0185F5F92B.jpeg A3A5AE49-7ED5-47DC-BEE7-C5349EF354C6.jpeg 2AAAAF8D-6EF6-44CA-865F-31FC7682BF7A.jpeg 47E0AB9C-7C2F-4151-8DFF-DE9A613AC92A.jpeg 1078A13F-66E8-4DD7-B55E-E1FEB7146445.jpeg 8B9F96DB-7127-4FDB-AB9D-D58A9950DF3E.jpeg
