After finally getting my BSB dialed in the way I want it I've been playing the hell out of it, and I have found that the stain does wear off, but I really don't mind it a bit. *It's probably one of (if not the) most comfy necks I've ever played. *I can't really "feel" the stain on it like Glen said, but I probably haven't been playing as long as he has. *I always took crocus(sp?) cloth and lemon oil to any finished necks I've had and that seemed to smooth them up a ton. *I'm just glad this guitar didn't need it. *It may sound silly, but if we're playing a gig in a place that has a pool table (and we usually are), I get a bit of the rosin from the hand chalk off the wall and use it on my palm. *Go ahead and make any jokes you want, I'm no stranger to 'em. *I'm right-handed anyway and don't get much strange (that would be the left hand, correct?). *It really does seem to help, though.
I'm done rambling for now.
