Hello all, I have noticed that my RG has started to get some green stains on the back of the neck. I obviously have not taken good enough care of it and would like to now know how to remove these stains without damaging the neck in anyway.

Cheers in advance.

It's nothing fatal for your neck or anything. It's just a discoloration.

there is probably nothing you can do, it looks like its in the wood. it doesn't really look that bad so i wouldn't sweat it.

Yeah well its not affecting the playability at all and thats the main thing. I was just curious if there was a way of removing it at all to make it look more aesthetically pleasing.

Is the finish damaged in any way? Usually you would get that from sweat on an un-finished neck.

unfortunately theres probably nothing you can do. the finish on the neck is most likely polyurethane which is next to impossible to strip and maple is super hard to touch up. you might try a damp rag, or a citrus cleaner, but the citrus cleaner could damage the white binding and make a bigger mess

Maybe it's sweat, pehaps some wood polish may help you.
