I have a Rickenbacker bass that I bought 5 years ago and periodicaly drag out because I love the tone however I get discouraged and quickly place her back under the bed. My issue is the glossy painted back of the neck is "grabby" and makes play very slow and "sticky". I need advice on how to best smooth, clean and speed up the neck. Should I use steel wool, sandpaper, compound or chemical to take care of my problem. Thanks for the help.
