just reading about Zack Wylde... says that his camo bullseye LP has a "Unfinished Maple Neck". Just wondering, why? what are some advantages/disadvantages? is it purely cosmetic?
it's faster, i think. the disanvantage is that sweat gets into the wood ****s it.
unfinished necks don't get sticky when you have sweaty hands. They're nicely sanded, though, so don't fear splinters or anything.
Has a different feel to the neck. I prefer finished necks, myself.
The unfinished neck is a lot faster to play on, but the compromise is that not having a hard finish on the neck makes the neck a lot more suspectible to warping.
you could just oil it, itll protect the wood but its so thin that it shouldnt slow you down when its sweaty
