Guitar Neck Finish


Recommended Posts

Unless it's dirty, it probably won't need a stain. The finish should darken it up again. Honestly, I'd probably leave it alone unless it feels weird. There's plenty of info on finish touch-ups at Frets.com, probably in the forum archives, definitely in the MIMF Library, and books have been written about it.

I have no clue what finish Simon and Patrick use on their necks, but my bet is it isn't nitro, so CA (superglue) fill may be the way to go. Painted in/on shellac or laquer may work, but probably won't burn in. Chances are you'll be able to see the refinish job.
