    On the back of Nash T-style necks (probably all Nash necks) where he does the heavy aging, is the wood actually left bare or does he go back with some kind of sealer to protect the wood? It’s hard to tell but mine actually feel a little rougher than where the finish is left intact. If it’s bare wood I was gonna hit it lightly with a scotchbrite pad and come back with some paste wax but if there is any finish there I don’t want to compromise it. Looks bare to me but I’m not sure.

    Any other thoughts to slick it up a bit?

    I would use tru-oil instead. three thin coats over three days, buff with steel wool in-between.

    So, you’re thinking it may be bare wood as he ships them?

    If so, you have a good thought.

    Doesn't Allparts where he at least used to get them from have some kind of sealer on the bare necks?

    I really do not know for sure. I have not played a Nash in several years.
