I just bought a replacement neck for my fretless J. It is currently unfinished and I would like to apply one before I bolt the puppy on. Can anyone offer suggestions as to simple methods of doing this or point to an already existing thread that has suggestions? I did a cursory search and found quite a few threads discussing finishes but not very many discussing finising necks. A few points just in case it makes a difference in the suggestions offered. It is a (slightly) used Warmoth fretless neck with a rosewood board. I plan on epoxying the fingerboard after the neck has been finished. I already know how to do this and have done it on multiple occasions with acceptable results. I wouldn't mind slapping a Fender decal on it before applying the finish. If it is going to be a massive hassle though, I'll probably just skip it. The tools at my disposal aren't extensive. I can probably cobble something together by "borrowing" some from family members, but the fewer requisite, the better. I am not looking for some sort of showpiece that will drop jaws. I am looking for a functional finish that will protect the neck. I'd prefer a satin feel over a glossy. If the finish feels too tacky, as most glossy finishes do to me, I am going to lightly sand it to a satin feel anyway. Thanks in advance.
