    Hello all, hope all is nice as pie.

    I was playing my Sadowsky the other day, and notied that on the very side of the neck where the end of the fretboard ends and the neck starts, there is greening going on there. :meh:

    Doe's anyone know how to stop this or why/how is happens?:confused:

    I'm not upset about it so much really, it hasn't hurt the sound or anything, but it doesn't really feel good having that on your bass.:meh:

    Thanks for your help.:)

    You eat, smoke, or not wash your hands before you play?

    Finish wear is wonderful.

    does it happen where the frets are? If so it's the nickel in the fret wire...
