Neck Finishing

Recommended Posts

How to do finish on maple necks (i am talking about the back of the neck) like Ibanez do, so it's not shiny like on fenders, it has to be mat. What finish they use? Thanks.

I guess some kind of satin clearcoat that has been wet and dried like crazy. I don't really know, but I think that's how I would try it. Going to be doing it on a neck i have.

I am not positive, but I believe Fender uses a thin coat or two of poly and leaves it as a matte finish. I personally prefer tung oil if time is not an issue. Or else I use Danish Oil quite often. Builds up a thin film but still has more of a natural wood feel.
