To all the guys with "sticky" neck problems. I took some advice off this forum and sanded the back of my Peavey HP Signature lightly and carefully. It works like a charm! I was very careful not to take it down through the finish and it is a satin finish now, not gloss.

After sanding with 600, then 800, then 1200, I used Carnauba wax to bring the luster back. Again, not shiny, but a satiny finish. Works great! I already had some workworking skills though.

If anyone else is having this problem, this will cure it!

I much prefer sanding all the way down to the wood, and then rubbing the neck with tung oil.

I am seriously an idiot. I was reading your thread and thinking to myself "Hmmm, I wonder why sticking doesn't bother me". Then I remembered that I bought a guitar with a satin neck for exactly that reason.

It's been a hard week at work, my brain is kinda numb.

I like bare wood with oil. Feels, looks and sounds better IMO. If you dont keep treating it, the neck will become unstable and might warp though so watch out kids ! lol

Ummmm, I would be hesitant on that then. I would not trust myself to do the "maintenance" to keep it where it should be. Glad I did what I did then .
