With an oiled neck the maple in the neck moves more than sealed necks, so you will want to either learn how to tweak it yourself or get it regularly setup. Oil necks feel amazingly great, but aren't the most practical.

I've never had a plek'ed neck before (except from factory), do you need to get your action and truss rod just right before you go in or do they take care of all that?

They do the whole thing. You tell them the tuning and how you play and what action you like. Then it gets the robot treatment. Matt at saltmine has also got some great results with different basses that are down tuned. He would be a more flexible option as he can work with you. Basically what the machine gives you is ‘correct’
