Hey,

I have a Gibson Les Paul Custom but i prefer oiled necks so i was thinking of taking it to a luthier and having it sanded proffessionally like the Zakk Wylde model... the problem is i haven't ever seen anyone do it - is there a problem with dong it? It it not a good idea to have an oiled mahogany neck (Zakk Wylde's neck is maple)?

Thanks in advance


PS: Say i wasn't concerned with the guitars resale value; would an oiled mahogany neck really be that high maintenance? How often would i have to re-oil it? The reason i'd rather have an oiled neck is not only because i prefer the feel but also the finish on the top side (around where the thumb goes when bending) next to the 5th fret has started peeling (my fault)...the problem there is not that it affect playability in the slightest, it just looking really, really annoying whenever i look down at the 5th fret... and im not sure the satinising would mask that...
Gear:

Gibson Les Paul Custom (Ebony)
Bodenhamer modded Maxon OD808
Marshall DSL 401 Combo
Mesa/Boogie F-50 w/ Marshall TSL 2x12 cab

Or better yet, ask your luthier.
