What's the finish in sadowsky necks?
I didn't found any info about this!
Its a flat nitrocellulose lacquer. As you play it, it buffs to a shine
Like the 70' Fenders?
I could care less what it is. All I know is it plays like Buttah
I think that's in the FAQ or Shop Tour of the Sadowsky website.
I know that Roger uses hundred dollar bills to buff the neck since he overcharges for the basses.
so THAT'S why he always wants the last $500 in cash....
Yep, from the Sadowsky FAQ:
John K. in Kent, WA asks: What does Sadowsky Guitars use to maintain maple necks and maple fretboards?
Roger Sadowsky answers: Since our maple necks and fingerboards are finished with nitrocellulose lacquer, we just use a regular light guitar polish like Dunlop 65.
If a neck is extremely dirty, we use Windex with an old toothbrush just to get off all the crud, and then finish off with the Dunlop polish.
Best feeling finish I've ever layed hands on Melts in your hands.
Hey guys, thanks.
From the pictures it looks like there's no finish just plain wood.
I think my jazz bass has a nitrocellulose kind of finish. Is the same kind of the sadowsky?
I'm asking just to have a comparison.
And thats pretty close to what it feels like! Its a very thin satin finish, no thumb sticking!
Thanks to you all.
Its not to heavy just the right feel for their excellent necks.
I'd go so far as to classify it as extremely light... hard to tell it's finished at all. That's just the way I like it: sexy satiny smooth!
Part of the 'feel' of the neck is that he finish sands with 200 grit sandpaper. It's the best feeling neck I've ever played.
Satin that the word
