Clear Coating Neck Tenon?


Recommended Posts

I never did, I dont finish any thing until the guitar is completely glued up, not including hardware. With some finishes you can even fret the guitar before finishing.

Makes a lot more sense to me, more so on a set neck where you can shape the heel post-gluing and once the clearcoat is on, sometimes you can't even feel the joint

I don't see much harm in clearcoating the heel on a bolt-on, though. I've done it before, and I think it makes the joint fit tighter, even if you're losing wood-to-wood contact.
