kench Posted July 27, 2004 Report Share Posted July 27, 2004 I'm building an LP style guitar and I'm planning to finish my guitar with nitrocellulose aerosol lacquers. But I don't like the "sticky" feel of the hard finishes. I already own a Fender and it has a great finish on the neck. It is different than its body finish. Not glossy, much more slippery to play and much thinner. I don't know what it is. I was wondering if it is a satin finish? or just finished with some other material instead of lacquer? It is a "1996 American Standard" series Strat. (I think there are american and standard series seperately now) Anyway.. If I spray satin lacquer on the neck of my new guitar, will it be slippery like my Fender's neck? Or is it just the visual? How do you guys achieve non sticky necks with nitro lacquers?... A satin finish is all I can think of... but I couldn't find any information about the "difference of feeling" between high gloss, satin, or matte finishes. Btw.. my neck wood is mahogany and will be finished with Nitro lacquer (CLOU brand aerosols) after grain filling and sealing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
