Universe Neck Question

I was wondering if the back of the neck on my Universe is just bare wood or is it oiled some how?

I've seen where some guitars have a finish of some type on the back of the neck, but this one seems real smooth and I don't see any type of finish.

Re: Universe Neck Question

If it's a 777 it's clearcoated, even though some of them are very thin, look at the serial number sticker and you'll see it clearly. All other UV's are oiled.

Re: Universe Neck Question

Okay, then mine is oiled. I got an older black UV with the green dots and the Andes mint style pickguard.

Thank you!
