So, I've been doing this little S-build. I've scored a lot of things for cheap.. I want to sand off the polyurethane from the back of the neck and stain it..

My question is: Does anyone know about how many layers of poly Ibanez put on their necks?
It's meant to be pretty thin, but that depends on which factory it comes from. The korean and indonesian factories lay it on pretty thick but the japansese prestige is a nice and thin satin finish. If you want it to be fast and smooth then go for just enough to seal the neck, maybe two coats.
