    I prefer the feel of a smooth satin finish on a neck, rather than the "sticky" feeling of laquer. Would wet sanding be a good way to smooth out the finish?

    I think a lot of people use fine steel wool to satin up the finish. Sandin g tends to take too much off, whereas steel wool will de-gloss more.

    Just do it slowly and lightly. Just to make sure don't overdo it.
