I know this has been posted about before at length, but as per the rules I didn't want to dig up an old thread and my question is slightly different than those discussed. I got a two pack of large synthetic steel wool pads from Canadian Tire. They say they're the equivalent of #000 steel wool. Will these be alright, or too harsh, to use on a neck (and potentially) fingerboard? I've used #0000 steel wool in the past. Its gentle, but messy, and the results are not always long lasting. It's a thin skin lacquer finish on the neck and is quite sticky and inhibiting while playing. The fingerboard also has noticable drag. I'm hoping this will smoothen it and make it 'faster' playing. If anyone is interested I'll post pics of the product and my results, if I go through with it.
