    Anybody know if the neck on a new American Series Jazz is laquer or a catalyzed polymer? I dropped the damn thing and it dented in one spot and the finish was removed to the wood in another.
    I am going to try to steam out the dent. It is shallow and finish does not seem broken. The spot where the finish is gone will be more of a problem. The wood is not dented, but a 1/4 x1/4 inch square patch of the laquer or polymer is gone. The finish is clear, satin not high gloss, and about the thickness of tape. Any ideas?
