Hi,

I'm currently stripping my Epi Les Paul. When I'm done, I will use a dark brown stain directly on the wood (on both the neck and body). Then I will finish it with tung oil. I have two questions?

- How does tung oil react on plastic bindings?

- I'm hesitating between 100% tung oil (aka china oil) and Polymerized tung oil because I like the matte finish of 100% tung oil but I know Poly-tung oil offers more protection. If I go with 100% tung oil, do I have to use some kind of sealer first as I would with Poly-tung oil (I not talking about grain filler here)?

Thx!

I would advise Danish oil instead of tung oil, it protects the wood better. if you do go with tung oil, get the 100% stuff, and no you wont need any sealers or anything.

Why "pure tung oil" over "poly-tung oil" ?
