For the past year or so, the lacquer on the back of the neck on my 1983 '62 P bass has been deteriorating to the point that when I would play, it would become so gummy and sticky that it was a hindrance. I had cleaned it numerous times with Naptha to no avail. I decided to remove the lacquer in the playing area and refinish it with Tru Oil. I sanded it down to raw wood which only took a few minutes, applied a stain that was a mixture of amber and dark walnut to give it some age, and applied 5 light coats of Tru Oil with my hands. I gently finished it off with a light scrub with 0000 steel wool. It feels so good now! No stickiness and, Im happy with the way it looks. Im sure some would disagree but, I stood all I could stand with the stickiness. What do you guys think?
