NGD - JS1000BP

I picked this up last week and just finished most of the setup last night, the pickup heights are among the last details to finish up. After a complete teardown, cleaning and rebuild it's finally playable and stays in tune with heavy trem usage (has the edge pro)! Win... win for me.

Comments/Questions:
The back of the neck was a bit glassy, probably due to just playing, so I lightly scuffed it up with 320 grit because I prefer either a satin or a oiled wood finish (I like either). The 320 grit felt very close (to me) to the satin texture on the back of the headstock, which I like. Note: I was able to pre-test grits on another guitar I have laying around.

My next step is to finish touch up sanding (or possibly sanding a bit more to get to bare wood) and then provide a coat of "something for protection". I am leaning towards something like a minwax wipe on poly (satin), the other option is something like tung oil. What I want to avoid though is adding any color, meaning I want to stick with a clear coating (regardless of type).

I guess the short story is that I want to "restore" the backside of the neck (in appearance), and have a nice satin or oiled finish. Have any of you used the minwax product mentioned above? Are there any pitfalls to consider? Are there alternatives to tung oil that do not contain dyes and that are completely clear?

Plugs: Thank you Rich for your website! I may be an Engineer and craftsmen however that only goes so far, your Ibanez specific content got me the rest of the way!!

Get some birchwood Casey tru oil and gun stock wax, that's what's used on music man guitar necks, it will give a fantastic finish, enjoy the new BP.

satchmo72 - thanks, yeah me too

GUITARMAGEDDON - thanks

irishibanez - thanks, I thought I read that true oil includes a tint. I am looking to avoid any tints if possible. I also have read in many places that this combination provides great results.

Congratz! That is a gorgeous guitar, and I love the black pearl finish. Some day I'll get one, but I have my eye on a JS2000 & JS1600 first. Enjoy man!

Re: NGD - JS1000BP

Use 2 or 3 very light coats of Minwax Wipe on gloss poly, when dry buff it with an old t-shirt or sock or micro fiber towel. It will feel a lot like an oil finish, but doesn't seem to tint bare wood as much... Here's a neck I built with poly applied... it's still pretty white after

Swirltop - Thanks for the info. Do you prefer the gloss version over the satin wipe on? Have you tried both? Yeah that neck finish still looks very clear.

There isn't going to be a difference in feel, but the satin will make the wood look a little cloudy or dull. Yes I like the gloss more, it is a clearer see-through finish....
