coloring the neck

Recommended Posts

Since you have to lacquer (finish, anyway) a maple fretboard, it doesn't matter if you do it clear or black or pink. I don't know if this holds true for rosewood or ebony.

Many guitars have the back of the neck finished, LPs and Steinbergers, to name two.

if you do lacquer the fretboard, you needn't mask the frets; when the lacquer dries, score the bottom of the frets with an X-Acto knife and then pick the lacquer off of the frets.
