Smoothing A Neck


Recommended Posts

I have bought an inexpensive Behringer guitar for my son. It plays OK, but the neck has some rough edges. It has a matte finish, but I dont know if this is some sort of Matte laquer or just natural wood. Id like to do a little fine sanding to improve it. Does anyone have any advice?

with thanks

It sounds as if you have a guitar with a natural color neck i.e. not dyed or tinted and with some sort of clear finish on it. If so, my suggestion to smooth the roughness (I'm assuming the roughness is in the finish, e.g. little nibs) by lightly rubbing with 0000 steel wool. It will retain the satin (matte) nature of the finish and smooth the nibs. Hope this helps.
