    i have a neck that i want to redo due to the fact that the backside of the neck doesnt' slide with ease anymore.

    im guessing have to sand and sand and sand.

    what kind of finish?

    i would like a full out treatment that i can do without professional assistance.

    A couple of Q's -

    what kind of finish does it currently have?

    what kind of wood is the neck made of?

    what are your limitations that you feel comfortable doing yourself?

    Try using the gray then the white scotch scuff pads then apply many coats of Qualasole.


    Easy to do and it givs a nic finish and feel to the back of the neck.

    No wax it will make your hand stick....t
