try a damped cloth. worked a little on my maple fretboard so a neck should be do-able too.
Yeah, I also think it looks like it has gone into the wood. You can sand it for a while and see if it seems to be getting better. Some people like a thinner neck, but I dont think you can take much off the sides near the fret board without making it unplayable. I suggest you develop a taste for the 'aged look' and learn to live with it. I was going to refinish the Charvel I revived, but I've fallen in love with its nicks, chips and discolouring. Now I call them character marks instead of damage.
punch your friend in the face for f*cking up the finish on your neck
then enjoy your free kinda relic'd neck

Hi, I am looking for an amp setting close to the sound of bands like Black Veil Brides.
