MIM strats nowadays have a satin finish on the neck. With time will the finish eventually turn that same lovely orange-ish colour on vintage strats?

Like this:

or will I have to get a glossy finished neck to achieve that?

Actually its the type of lacquer and its exposure to certain things that turn it that colour.
Old school guitars and some new vintage models are made of Nitro-cellulose paint, which will turn yellow over time and when exposed to cigarette smoke. However most new guitars and all MIM fenders are made with Polyurethane finish which is a lot tougher and wont age the same

thats why i made sure my guitar is nitro-cellulose finish
