  • Squier CV Neck Finish

    Does anybody else dislike the finish on the CV necks. I got my CV tele about a year and a half ago and after about the first week, I ended up taking a scotch brite pad to the sticky finish on the back of the neck. Now it's smooth as silk. Has anyone else done this?

    I got mine in April and have been fine with it so far.

        I used sandpaper on mine years ago. Huge improvement.

          I also prefer gloss on any neck.... can't stand unfinished (like the Zakk Wylde Gibson)

            I like a gloss neck just fine but they seem like they are coated so thick that they may as well be in a glass case.

                  I like it. It feels the same as my CIJ52 which is also poly. What I didnt like was the finish on my 52RI, so much that I stripped it off and put a few coats of Tru Oil on.

                  Id love to get that satin-poly feel of the roadworns. Thats the slickest neck Ive ever played.

                    I actually love the gloss.

                      The finish on my RG doesn't present any problems, but there was just something about the one on the CV that made it seem way too sticky. I also feel this way about many neckthru guitars with painted necks.

                        I steel wooled the neck on my Epiphone '56 Reissue. It saved it from possibly never being played again. Now it's very good.

                          The gloss does not bother me a bit.

                          Edit: do you like the neck finish on a Deluxe?


                          • #14
                            Doesn't bother me a bit. As long as a gloss finish doesn't feel sticky, I leave it alone.

                              Usually I like gloss but the CV neck was a bit too plasticky. Ten minutes with fine steel wool and it was perfect.
