    I ended up using India ink instead.

    cheers, Mark.
    Mark, I could not find any india inks that were soluble in oil; only water.
    Did you find an oil-soluble ink? Or did you use the ink on the bare wood?

    Thanks for the input.

    Hi FunkedOut.
    I was staining Epiphone junior with a water based ink and Tru-Oil lifted it and spread it around.

    I got myself some 'Bombay' brand india ink from a general stationary supplier 'Riot Art Supplies'

    The red wasn't quite yellow enough so I got a bottle of red and yellow.
    Once it had dried, I could apply Tru-Oil over the top and it worked no problem.

    Strange result with the Tru-Oil lifting the ink.
    The Bombay ink is also water based.
    Luckily, things went well for me with the KEDA dye and Tru-Oil.
    3rd full strength coat of Tru-Oil went on the body today. Things are starting to even out nicely.

    Back to the neck...
    I grabbed a couple of linseed oil based paints to tint the Tru-Oil with.
    Seems to have been successful.
    Iíll know for sure when it dries.
    I have to get some pics up
