My hands always seem to stick to the neck of my sg...was wondering, after I sand the neck, what should I put on it? Can I leave it dry or should I put some type of laminate stuff on it.

Before you start sanding have you tried polishing the neck? If you have and it still drags try some 000 steel wool and see if that helps. Then again it may be your hands, try a little talc on your hand and see if that helps.

How old is the guitar? Nitro feels odd for a few months if new.

I was feeling impulsive and already sanded it before i made this thread...it just feels kinda raw now...seems like it needs some type of lacker, but i'm not sure what to put on it.

Just clean the strings, your hands and the necks before playing. Most cases of sticky necks I've seen is because of sweat residues from previous sessions.

Put some Tung oil on it this will seal the neck and leave it very smooth

Cool, I'll get some of that. Any special way of putting it on..like the amount of coats?

You shouldn't have sanded it. Steel wool rubbing was the most you should have done I fear.

Go ahead and spend your money, I don't care. It won't make you sound better.

Sure upgrading your gear will make you sound better.

Well, I didn't sand the hell out of it...just a light sand.

Well still, sanding is very harsh to wood as I'm sure you know. See how it goes with the tung oil.

Did you Google it beforehand?

Tung oil or Tru oil should make it quite smooth. I used Tru oil on my neck and after 6-7 coats it's the beat the hell out of any glossy poly finished neck I've played.
