so, i have read many forums about sanding your neck down to make it smoother.
some say that you should apply some sort of oil afterward to prevent moisture from your hands from getting in the wood.
i would like to know what the best one would be out there?
also, is there a proper sanding tool to use? (sandpaper, steel wool, scotchbrite)

OOOO Steel wool seems to be most widely use, as is Tung Oil.

be careful though, you have to reapply the oil every couple of months (say every three), else the wood on the neck will turn green. i kid you not.

other than that, tung oil and 0000 steel wool is the way to go.

Well oil is a pretty poor protector against moisture. I imagine your neck already has a clear lacquer finish on it? Why not just rough that up with 0000 steel wool?

I've done that on 3 or 4 guitars, and I have always liked the results.

I totally agree, i use 1000-1200 sand paper. Much easier to clean, resistant to moisture, and maintenance free!
