Maple-neck Finish Question


Recommended Posts


How thick may be a lacquer ( nitro ) on maple-neck fretboard?

I want to protect my fingerboard, but I do not want to kill sustain / sound of my Strat.

On my Fender American Strat, it's THICK on the fretboard. I'd just as soon it wasn't, because I want it to start looking like the guitar from the cover of "layla and assorted love songs" :D.

I wouldn't worry too much about lacquer on the fretboard killing sustain or tone, but I'm not an expert.
