Siena's Stratocaster - Wudtone Neck Kit: Vintage Amber

I got my first coat of Vintage Amber Wudtone on the stratocaster neck today. It's an oil based finish so it goes on nice and smooth. Unlike oil paint though, it doesnt streak and soaks into the wood very nicely. For necks, the base colour is brushed on with a fine hair brush. The guidelines say that you should apply several very thin coats.

I think I may have overdone it a little on this first coat - the colour on the front of the headstock is a little uneven. Oh well, I am hoping that the colour will even out with subsequent coats..
