Finishing a Maple Neck

Recommended Posts

The best way? That's really a subjective question with no one right answer.

Depends on how you want the neck to feel. I like mine candy coated, so for me it's a nice shiny coat of lacquer.

For maple, you can leave it finish-free and have a nice natural feel to it. Mind you, it'll look as ugly as sin in a short time.

I'll be interested to hear what everyone else says about this one.

Hey Scott, how/when do you apply the clear to the maple fretboard? Is this done after fretting? I have noticed that my Ibanez has had quite a bit of the clear worn away and doesn't look very good. Would it be better to just leave it natural or does that cause more problems?
