I have been playing my Jaco relic these days and have been loving the feel of the neck. It has a great "broken-in" feeling. It is very similar to that of my Stingray, which I think is considered unfinished maple. I am sure there is some finish, that is just how it feels to me. If you have played enough Rays you know what I am talking about. I am wanting to try to replicate this feeling on my Fender Standard P. From what I gather, I take a scrub pad (gray/fine style) and just give it a few rubs. I then rub the neck with some kind of oil (gunstock wax?) I bought a Peavey Fury to try the whole procedure on, just in case. I am going to use it to try some other mods, but those will be different threads. Does the neck finish matter? I am guessing they are both just poly but the Fender appears thicker. My Fender has a skunk stripe, will that affect anything? Am I headed in the right direction?
