I generally prefer satin necks... hate the nasty thick gloss. I need my necks to feel fast and smooth, but NOT like bare wood.
The two that I've had were very nice, not sticky. But it's nothing like a typical oil finish like EBMM or a US Masters. My impression was the GNT was not quite as glossy or as thick as a typical "gloss" finished neck.
To be honest I don't know how G&L applies that finish, but if you told me it's a blend of satin and gloss I could believe it.
That said, if you have sticky hands like a tree frog, you might want to first check one out in person.
