Ibanez Neck Finishing

I recently got a RG570 and i noticed something almost the minute i took it out of the box. Why does the neck have a satin finished headstock and a gloss finished back? Makes no sense to me.

Your 570 came from the factory with a satin finish on the neck. The satin was polished into a gloss over time from playing. Buffing with a little steel wool or fine scotchbrite will get you back to a smooth satin.

Yeah i didn't think it was factory gloss because it didn't feel smudgy like my old strats. Thanks for the info though!
