For maple guitar necks, are you supposed to use lemon oil or mineral oil to take care of it? Or do you even need to do that with this type of neck?

I never oiled mine. Idk. Probably would have been a good idea

No. Just wipe them with a water dampened cloth. There was literally a thread about this on Thursday or so of last week... Just sayin'

^ yeah don't use oil on a maple neck
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Sorry about that... I did search for one, but didn't find one. But thank you.

wipe it down once a year or so. There's no unfinished surfaces on a maple neck so it won't dry out. No oil.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

The neck is sealed, so it wouldn't be absorbed into the wood.

It would just leave "gunk"/residue on your fretboard and you would have to wipe it off.
I don't believe in signatures. Ah, sh...

What do you mean? They are usually coated as stated above. I suppose you could leave them unfinished but they'd get stained dirty and ugly pretty quick with no way to clean it other than bleaching or sanding...
