Trixie Cant Act Posted April 18, 2008 Report Share Posted April 18, 2008 (edited) I have been testing my finishing techniques (before actually wasting good wood and an instrument) and have moved to the necks. I have 2 questions. The seemingly natural looking necks like fender and the like seem to have a finish/clear coat on them... is this correct or is it just bare sealed wood or what? Is the side of the fretboard also clear coated? Also if I am to paint a neck how do I avoid the paint ridge to the fretboard? If it should be finished before the fretboard goes on how to I protect the finish when sanding the fretboard smooth to the paint level. Or how can it be done with an existing neck without removing the fretboard. If i already experimented on a junk neck and now have a paint ridge higher than the sides of the fretboard how would I get rid of it? I masked the fretboard from the paint and clear coats. Ok more than 2 questions really but help, insight and pointing in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.
