    I'm going to be painting the back of a maple neck / headstock. Do I need sanding sealer first or can I start with primer / paint?

    Thanks

    Need sealer.Thought I like to use a thin coat of clear nitro to raise the grain if any before I move on to finish coats.
    Good luck with your project,
