I want to sand off the slight finish thats on my Squier '51 neck and want to leave it that way.

Would it be more prone to warping if i left it unfinished?

Jeeso, it would get smaller and smaller haha.

For satin I'm not 100% sure.
But usually when it comes to clearcoats for guitar it's between nitro and polyurethane.

Here's a page I ofund useful a while ago:

There was a few others I found too, I'll post them if I can find them

Edit: Here's another link, it's mainly just people arguing, but it has a lot of good points

For what it's worth, My old school Squier II, had a gloss neck and somebody took 000 Steel Wool to it before I got it, but not enough to removed the finish. So when I first got it as a teenager the guys at the Guitar Shop would run a piece of 000 across the back of the neck to take care of the oil build up, but they would just do a swipe down and back up, with as much pressure as a towel or rag. They always told me they did it because it had already been done to it, it wasn't something they did to all guitars. Apparently back in the day it was a common thing to do, since most necks were gloss finished.

The neck on that guitar has the best feel in the world, but sometimes if will feel sticky, then I just rub the back like the showed me back in the day and it' right back to awesome.

So if you have a glossy finish you can try that, just know that someday the finish will wear through...
