    so.

    I want to refinish the back of the neck on my jbass so it looks a little more vintage.

    I searched around on here, but couldn't find any decent information, so I decided to start a thread.

    should I do a little sanding and then apply a new coat of finish or what?

    I have no clue.

    thanks.
     
  2. Most vintage fenders have a nice amber tint to them, as they age, the nitro cellulose yellows a bit to that color.

    Go to www.reranch.com and check out their basic finishing section. It has a whole section on ambering your neck. Your probably going to have to sand the old finish down, apply some sealer clear coats, amber to the desired color, and than shoot some more clear.

    Im sure though thats only one of many possible methods, but I'd figure I'd share.
