hi guys. I'm not really satisfied with the feel of the neck of my epi LP custom. I want it to be more slippery but don't want to lose the beautiful black colour by shaving the paint off. I'm thinking about refinishing the neck, but I'm not sure how to do it and what kind of paint should I choose. Please give me some advice. Thanks in advance!

thnx for the advice.could you explain clearer how do I apply it??

If it comes in spray form, spray it onto a cloth and rub it in. If it's wax form, rub a cloth in it and rub it on.

they usually print some instructions right there on the back of the can. it's pretty much self-explanatory though.

honestly though just buy yourself a bottle of dr. ducks ax wax. it also has instructions on the bottle. use google to find where you can get it.

Naw, just sand off the clear coat, and re apply a satin instead of gloss.

Then you keep the colour, and it won't "stick" to your hands to bad.

Just use lacquer spraypaint.

you could use 0000 steel wool or whatever the number is, but really fine steel wool. it keeps the color and makes it not stick. it does make it a bit duller and with close inspection you can tell its just tiny scratches but hey, its meant to be played not looked at

I used 1200 grit sandpaper to smooth my neck out. It does make it look "faded" but over time, it is going to get that way anyway if you put in the practice time.

Worked great for me...just remember, a little goes a l-o-n-g way with this

use the steel wool or very fine sandpaper, and if it fades slightly, you could always do a relic job on it...

thnx very much, guys. however, there's still one thing that worries me. I read on some guitar magazine that Angus Young had to abandon one of his SG 'coz of its absorbing too much sweat (does he has any guitar tech to take care of it for him???). is there any chance my shaved LP's neck absorbs sweat/damp and distort/crack?

I live in Vietnam, where the humidity varies from 75-95% during the year so I think this should be taken into serious consider
