Neck Finish

Recommended Posts

Hi, I need some help. How to achieve mat finish on back of the maple neck (it can be mahogany also) that is mostly found on Ibanez guitars? Is there some special finish or what? Thanks :D

Its just a mat lacquor. you can do the same by just spraying gloss or satin and rub it back to suit. probably down to 800 or 1000, any way you will judge as you go. OR For Maple try oil , boiled linseed or danish, tru oil. I have oiled Mahogany necks but I don't think it suits the wood as the grain is too open and you need to re oil it too often. not great with sweety hands either. Maple is ok.
