Okay, update. Had some time to kill today so took a kitchen scotchbrite to the neck of my Wildkat. Within a very few minutes, and with very little "sanding" if you will, there was a noticeable difference in the "user friendly" feel of the neck (see my earlier post re: tung oil finish neck on my Carvin). As always, my experience only, and YMMV. Pics wouldn't really show a difference in appearance, only gloss level. Gonna consider this on my other Epi's as well. As previously noted, resale is not an issue with me, and a lot of my guitars have been modded to suit me and are not going to get the money out of them that I've put into them (my heirs problem, not mine) [flapper]

I guess I've not really contributed to the issue other than it worked for me (so far).

I just purchased a used Wildkat, and plan to "scotchbright" the neck as noted above.
Thanks for the open discussions.
