Hi all, I've got an 1982 Emerald Green Fender P bass. It has a 79 neck on it that came from the factory. I love the way it sounds but i'm not really a fan of the way it plays. If I were to sand the back of the neck & make it smooth I would like it a lot more I think. However, i feel horrible ruining a piece of history. Has anyone done this? I really like the way some of the old music man basses feel & I'm pretty sure it's because there's no gloss on the back.
