    OK, so I got another medium scale Fernandes a week ago and it's pretty cool. But the back of the neck is painted, and it just doesn't feel quite right. Do you guys think I should sand the neck, or is there some goop I can put on it?

    I'd rather not sand.

    try waxing it. My last 3 basses have had painted necks and it hardly notice the difference myself.

    Not sanding but steel wool, you can get it to a nice satin feel and if you want to go back to gloss later you can.

    Dunlop sell guitar waxes
    The Steelwool will work, So will a red scotch-brite pad.
