I have an Epiphone SG that I want to customize and revamp entirely. I want to put in new tuners, a new TOM bridge, new knobs, new pickups and a new paint job. The Sg I have is black and I'm going to paint it white. I was just wondering for the neck, to get a satin black finish, will I have to paint the neck with a satin finish paint or would I only have to sand off the lacquer finish on the neck? Thanks for the help

Do me a favor, take off all the strings, and unscrew the neck, and look at the neck joint. If the body is plywood, you might as well not even bother, if it's one solid piece of basswood, then go for it.

...It's a G-400. It's solid mahogany.
It needs sanding of the neck, then a satin clear coat.

so do i need to sand off all the finish on the neck then refinish it and then spray the satin finish lacquer or can i jus sand off the clear coat of the neck and spray on the satin finish lacquer?

He said it's an SG, not G-400. The reason I said check the body is because most of Epiphone's SG Specials come in ebony and cherry red, and a lot of them are plywood. Also, most G-400's have 18:1 Grover tuners, which are pretty good tuners. I don't see why he would replace them unless he really wants Sperzel locking tuners or something.

Anyways, if I were you, I'd probably completely respray the neck, because chances are you might sand a little too hard and accidentally go through the paint. Just sand it down, respray it, then satin coat it.
