Am I the only person here who sands all of his guitars necks? I use a very fine grit, and sand the paint off, because it feels better to me, and is actually much easier to play. Is there any problems with this?

No there are no problems with it. I would recommend finishing it with tung oil, though. This only makes the neck smoother, and doesn't change the colour or anything.

I actually cannot think of a downside to tung oiling a neck. You should try it.

He said he's sanding the paint off. I would imagine that means he's going to the wood...

By the sounds of it your not getting down to the wood so don't worry about tung oil or anything.


How the hell could you miss that????

yeah, use a tung oil finish, it makes the neck amazingly fast.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

With some cheap guitars its almost essential to sand the neck down a little to smooth it down. Some necks feel like a grannys leg so they dont play too well. Down to the wood or not I cant see it doing any harm but you may need to be carefull if its in a damp room though.
