Is the back of RG1527 neck sticky ?


I have UV777 and I love the back of its neck because there is no oil/lacquer coat, and I can feel the plain wood with no sticky coat. I have another RG5xx, and its neck has light coating with bubinga stripe. After I did a neck sand from , I still can feel its sticky-ness, and I hate it. I can't make RG's to be smooth as UV's. I think it's depend on the grade of wood that has different texture.

I'm wondering if the back of RG1527 neck is a plain wood or does it has sticky coat ?

The UV has a finish on the back of the neck, just like the RGs.

sounds like you didn't sand all the way through the finish. Grab a can of tung oil, start with rough steel wool or medium-light grade sand paper, and gradually work down until you're using 0000-grade sandpaper and getting sawdust, not shredded laquer, when you sand. Then, put a coat of tung oil on, let it dry, sand it back down, and repeat another two times. Problem solved.

Of course, this makes the guitar much more susceptable to climate changes, so I'd recommend learning to cope.
