I was kind'a just guessing about what I'd do if I were to do it. I would certainly stop sanding once it felt "smooth enough". I mentioned Tru-Oil because I'd worry about moisture absorption and warpage on bare wood, and because it is very similar to how Ernie Ball/Musicman finish their necks, and I love the feel of EBMM necks. But, since your not having problems with a bare neck it may not be necessary.That's great advice Boobla. I did that on my CS tele the day I got it. But I didn't put any tru oil on it. Left it bare. I only went up to 400 grit and that was feeling a little too smooth for me.
