This is a brief thread on how I approach a lacquer finish on an aftermarket maple neck. 1. I build all the necks for my guitars, so this will be a pleasant experience for me. I don't have to do any of the hard work, but I get to see the final results. 2. I would like to thank Leon Grizzard for taking the risk and sending me his brand new Musikraft neck for finishing. If yall don't know Leon, he is a prominent forum member here on TDPRI, and a great musician. He has posted a lot of great tutorials on youtube, check this one out. About 7 o'clock this evening, this arrived on my doorstep. Would you look at that, a brand new Musikraft neck!
