"Tacky" neck?

    So I recently played a Marcus Miller signature after looking for one in my area for a while. I'd heard raves about the neck, how it was very smooth and playable. But when I tried it (and another one a few weeks later), it had what I can only describe as a tacky sort of feel. Pretty much the opposite of smooth. I've never heard of this kind of thing, anybody care to share a hypothesis?
     
  2. It's a gloss finish, and most modern Jazz basses have satin finishes.
