I'm currently looking at picking up a 2007 Classic 72 Tele Thinline. I've always been a rosewood guy, mainly because I dislike the thick glossy finish Fender uses on their maple necks and boards. The only maple board I own is on a deluxe strat, and it's a satin finish that's feels great and is very playable. If I do get the thinline I'm willing to give the glossy neck a chance. I know some people love them, and I've heard that once broken in they get nice and smooth. I've only ever played them on new guitars in shops. If I don't ever get on with the gloss, I know some of you have had success taking fine steel wool to it. Any tips? Is that the kind of thing an idiot like me can pull off without ruining things? The body too (it's one of the natural ash bodies) has that super thick poly coating. Is it possible to take steel wool to that too, or is that a bridge too far? Thanks, just ideas I'm kicking around.
