: Im interested in removing the varnish on the back of the maple neck on my fender jazz bass. any suggestions on procedure and use of a sanding sealer would would be appreciated.
O.K. get some 80grit, some 120grit, some 180grit, some 220grit, some 400grit and some 600grit sand paper( I prefer the black paper kind ). After you have removed all the harware from the neck and the neck from the body, take the 80g and start sanding. 80g is pretty rough, you can really change the shape of the neck with this stuff...but just get the finish off. Don't worry about the little grooves the grit leaves you will sand that out later. When all the finish is off proceed with the next highest grit and so on until the neck is ultra smooth. The 600g will polish the wood..after using it, the wood will actually shine. You dont need a sealer, you can put tung oil on there if you like. Or keep some 600g paper in you guitar case and polish the back of the neck occasionally. The neck will be silky smooth with the 600g paper.....enjoy....it's a great feel....peace.....John
