Gilla Posted May 8, 2010 Report Share Posted May 8, 2010 I've found a really good deal on a Gibson Faded Flying V, but I really don't like the rough grainy finish on the neck. I would like to smooth it out, but don't want to sand through and refinish. Is it possible to fill/polish the neck over the finish to get rid of the rough grainy feel? I was thinking a high end car wax and guitar polish could do the trick, but would like to get some insight from those more experienced, rather than assume something and ruin the finish.. So, what would be the most effective way to get a smooth satin finish, essentially filling the grain on the neck, without stripping the original finish (if it's even possible?) I really don't wanna pass up such a great deal, but I can't stand the porous grain on Gibson's satin/faded finish. Any tips or tricks to solve this problem are greatly appreciated. Again, I'm looking for a solution that I can do over the original finish, as refinishing is too costly for me, and I want to keep the V original. Thanks in advance for any help!
