Painted Neck Back


Recommended Posts

Just a quick question before I hit the sack: What's the best way to smooth out the transition between the paint on the back of a neck to the fretboard? Basically, how to avoid that lip that's inevitably going to occur. I know binding can make this easier, hell I've even seen the sides of fretboards cleared over, leaving the front untouched.

Trying to work out possible kinks in my first paintjob before they become actual wrenches in the system. Thanks in advance, all!

The sides of fretboards are nearly always cleared over. Just mask the front when spraying, and once your finsih is cured, peel the tap, and lightly go over the corner of the fretboard with a semi hadrsanding block to polish the fretends and smooth the finish edge.
