Satin necks turn to gloss?

I`ve noticed on some used RG`s (non Prestige models) i`ve been seeing in stores that the back of the necks are more glossy than the brand new ones. Their all supposed to be Satin finished necks so my question is..do they turn to gloss/glossy after awhile? Then again by seeing them for myself, i guess they do! *lol*

Yes and no. The new ones are rougher, and they do become smoother over time as your hand wears on the neck, but it will never really become a gloss finish, no matter how much you wear it down.

GuitarBizzare got it spot on. If you really don't want it to get glossy though, you can just treat it periodically with a bit of sandpaper and tung oil.

Yeah the one i saw today was a used 2007 RG2EX1 and the back of the neck was almost gloss compared to the new 2009 ones. Pretty cool imo,so cool that i`m actually buying it....not only because of the neck but the guitar was excellent!
