Just received this guitar and really enjoying it. Was playing it quite a bit and was noticing that my hands were feeling "dirty" afterwards. Didn't think much of it at the time. Today I decided to polish the frets since they were definitely not shiny or slick. After having the strings off and working on the frets I could see a putty like residue on the fingerboard. I cleaned it a polished it...what a difference. The back of the neck was the same so I gave it a quick acetone/simple green/polish treatment. It's now much smoother and cleaner- not glossy but shiny. Feels much better! I guess this was part of the Road Worn treatment? I understand artificial checking and wear, but gunk...no thanks.
