Wizard III neck Cleaning

So the back of my guitar's neck looks a bit like someone covered in coal had a go on it :/ it's a 3 pc maple job so i don't know whether to just use some elbow grease and a dry rag to get it off, light wire wool or sand paper to take a bit off the surface, or what. Thanks for any help.

Re: Wizard III neck Cleaning

some steel (wire) wool is usually sufficient. your neck is not that old, so the dirt should mainly be on the surface and not so much in the grain. start with #00 to deep clean, then go to #000 to finish clean/smooth out.....and finish with #0000 to get the neck nice and smooth.
