on my maple neck, i chose the glossy finish which i USUALLY LIKE, but do to the dryness of my hands and tendencies to wash alot, my neck is pretty sticky. Ive played other peoples guitars that are the same and they feel like it should. Anyone know a good way to grease up the neck?? (without using like pizza grease or something nasty) cheers laugh.gif

I prefer to go with a dry-slippery instead of an oily-slippery.

ELMER'S SLIDE-ALL 4 Oz. Dry Spray Lubricant
With teflon. Slicker than silicone, oil or graphite.
Works fast with less mess. No oily stain.

Found in many hardware-stores, about $2.50 a can. On the back of your neck I think it's the best thing available and totally safe for your finish.

Un-plugged is not the same as never-was-plugged-in-to-begin-with.
