I posted this in the Gear Building and Customizing but i am not getting enough answers so...I am thinking of making the neck of my Epi SG Special unfinished. Anybody know how i would go about doing this w/o hurting my guitar too bad?

I guess just sand it down & polish it, but be careful to make it even.

Polish it with what?
I want it to feel like the neck of a Squeir i guess...that is the only guitar that i can think of with a neck like that.

lol, squier


you can use gun stock oil to finish it, or danish/tung oil. They feel good and are not sticky.

Yeah, i didnt want to say it either, ut i just couldnt think of another guitar that i have played with an unfinished neck.

I have been told that if i dont put something on it, that my neck will warp. Is this true. If i use gun stock oil (like hoppes) will i have to apply it on a regular basis?
I just want to sand it, put something on it, and be done with it.

Did it affect the straightness of the neck. Did you sand it all the way to the wood?

no all you need to do is rub it with 0000 grit steal wool intill it is satin smooth. then run a cloth down it to pick up left over steal wool. it only has to be satin not down to the wood.

^^Yeah thats exactly what I did. Would it be bad if some steel wool particles got "magneted" onto the screws of my pickups?

no just grab a magnet an pull them off or a hair dryer will blow them off or just leave them.
but if you don't rub it off the neck it will get in your hand.
