while preserving the integrity of the neck? Anybody know the secret? I am interested in doing this on my Baja Tele. Im not looking to re-shape the neck, just want to get rid of the finish to reduce the stickiness. Ive been reading all kinds of conflicting things. Some people think that in the long run, sanding down the neck will eventually lead to problems with the neck warping. Some guys use sand paper, some guys use steel wool. Can any of you guys who build guitars or have been sanding down necks for years confirm how to do this the right way?
