New maple back neck (rosewood fretboard). How many coats of Tru-Oil is enough on the back (I know not to finish the rosewood)?

I guess it all depends on what your goal is. mine was to finish a neck that left you longing to play it again and was superior to much of what is available on production run and semi-custom instruments today. I can definitely say I succeeded in finishing it to my level of detail.

Do they feel similar??
I'm all set to use Tung Oil on my guitar, body and neck, but...I'm reading so much about TruOil here and on ReRanch that it's making me curious to check out TruOil.....
What are the main differences? Besides drying time....

But my impression is that poly finish necks that are finished to a high gloss tend to keep a slightly 'sticky' feel, and Tru-oil when finished the same does not have that.
