I'm kicking around picking up a P or J bass neck from Warmoth and am undecided on finishes. Aesthetically, I suppose I want it to look good, but I'm more concerned with how it feels. A few weeks back I stopped in a local music store and there was a used Epi Jack Casidy that I played. The price was more than I was willing to pay, but I must admit the neck felt like silk - I suppose if I were to have to choose adjectives that describe it I would say (and I'm referring to the back of the neck here) it felt fast, dry, silky...it honestly had a very slick feel that I really enjoyed and haven't ever felt on any of my Fenders. (Note: the Epi was black and the neck was also black). My question to anyone here with a background on Warmoth finishes, which finish would/did you choose? Hopefully some of you players can relate to the "sensation" I'm referring to - it was the first time I've felt a neck like that and I almost bought the bass by virtue of that alone.
