Sanding a SX SJB-62QMD?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by KeithBMI, Aug 1, 2005.

  1. Is it easy to sand the neck of a SX bass? I don't like the laquer finish, it becomes too sticky after playing hard. I've heard that all I have to do is run fine sandpaper up and down it a couple of times and it will be gone. Is this true? Thank you in advance! :smug:

    I sanded the neck on my SX jazz and it was very easy. It took me a few minutes with 400 grit paper followed by a rubdown with a green 3M Scotchbrite pad. Steel wool would also work, but it tends to fly to the pups. I probably removed half of the finish; all of it on a small spot so I stopped. It now plays much faster and looks great.
  3. Cool, Thanks! :smug:
