I am a huge fan of matte neck finishes and unfinished necks(Think of those wonderful musicman necks). I really don't like glossy necks. I have two great parts basses with mighty mite necks(that's the feel I am going after) but I am on my way putting one more together, but mighty mite does not offer a neck I would like for that project. Since I am on a budget I find it really hard to find a suitable neck with this kind of finsh for my project that is affordable(without resorting to guys like warmoth). So one of the options I have been thinking about was purchasing a normal finished neck and sand the finish off of it(I was specifically thinking of allparts). I actually ran into this relicing process guide that did something similar, but in that case, after the sanding was done, a dye was applied on the back of the neck(for that stained look). My question would be if I would need to apply something on the neck after the sanding. I know that there is many layers of finish including the sealer and sure enough I don't want to be left with a more than normal sensitive neck. If you have any other suggestions on how to actually do this you are more than welcome to share it. Just keep in mind that I am on a rather limited budget and I am also rather limited on resources.
