The cure for sticky neck syndrome


Recommended Posts

I did this such a long time ago I forgot about it.

If you have a guitar where the nitro wasn't given sufficient time to cure before they sprayed more on there:

wipe the neck down with lighter fluid (naptha)

use a damp cloth and apply a good coat of paste carnauba wax (I use Mother's California Gold) and let it sit for around 10 minutes

use a little elbow grease when you buff it off with an old t-shirt or similar.

That should do it without harming the finish.

If it comes back, repeat but you probably won't have to.
