    I'm new here, this actually my first post. After viewing the down right and absolute godliness that is this guitar I had to join. I've seen designs similar to this but this one annihilates them all. Bravo.

    Anyhow on to my question...

    Right now I am in the prep stages of putting together a guitar from a handful of spare Ibanez parts (RG Body, an edge, and a few Dimarzios I pulled out of my old Jackson XTRR before I sold it) and I have to know: how can I get my neck to look like that? Josh stated above that it was stained and oiled and I was curious what kind of stain would achieve that look?

    This may be a dumb question but I have looked around and haven't found anything definitive on the topic. Any help would be great, thanks guys.

    Thanks, man!
    I just used the Minwax Decorator stain. The color is black onyx. I think I did like 3 or 4 coats to make it really dark and then I did about 4 coats of tung oil over it.

    It looks amazing. Does it still have the fast smooth feel of a satin neck?

    Yep! The key is to go over it with very fine steel wool between every coat all through the tung oil. But not too much.
