Do most of the Modern Ibanez, Jackson, ESP and other brands have Satin/Unfinished necks? Because I recently got a discontinued ibanez RG270 and the neck has a clear gloss on it. I thought usually ibanez didnt do this. I was considering sanding the gloss off or trading necks with my friend that has an almost identical RG. I was afraid that it may suppose to be this way though so i wanted to ask first.

I was also afraid that changing necks may affect the sound because his has a rosewood fretboard and mine maple. I would say that I prefer maple but I dont know why.
