Spot Mandolin: Neck finish - gone!! (21) Tech: Neck finish - gone!! 23 Aug 06


Allo everybody...
                      Mando players in particular. I've just taken the bull by the horns and taken a Stanley knife blade to the neck of my Collings MT2.The original finish was oh-so-sticky in hot weather etc, the web between thumb and forefinger acting as a brake and causing considerable sonic distress to anyone daft enough to listen to my playing!! Well, knife blade, patience, fine grit sandpaper and Tung oil later..it's bloody wonderful!!!!
                      I'd be most keen to hear of anyone else's experiences and advice......

                Regards to all, as ever...Spot
