    Some folks have reported using ultra fine Scotch Brite pads on the back of their Geddy necks helped a bit. I was too chicken to try it myself.

    I take the shine off of every bass neck I get.

    That thing looks great!

    I've done it on several basses that came with sticky glossy poly - no issues, really, fairly easy to control, gives it a nice fast matte finish.

    I did it on a MIM P-Bass where the neck just felt sticky because of the finish. Just rub it gently for a few passes and check every few passes and feel the neck to check to see if it helps buff it out.

  10. Nice. Congrats. I love the sound and overall playability of my GL but secretly prefer the waxed neck of my EBMM Sterling. Shhh....
     
  11. Yay!!!
     
  12. I’m probably going to tackle it this weekend, I don’t think it’ll be bad
     
  13. Haha those are nice
     
  14. My first "de-glaze" of a glossy neck involved some steel wool and a damp rag.

    These days, I'd probably go with what others have suggested- Scotch Brite pads may be a better bet...

    I did this on a squier neck and it made it so much nicer to play. I would not hesitate at all to do this, especially if you plan on keeping it.

  20. So when she ever questions another NBD/NAD/NED, you can just tell her you opted to "Choose Happy". She wouldn't want to ever see you miserable, would she???
