    im going to paint my first maple neck, been building guitars for a while now but always oil necks instead. im using 2k urethane but my question is what can i do to not get clear in the fret slots as i want to fret it after? just thinking it will be a pain to clean them after
    thoughts?

    Personally I wouldn't do that. Too much of a chance of scratching the neck for one reason. Why do you want to do it after? The frets are easy to clean after spraying if that's your main reason.

    the neck will look cleaner if there is no paint on the frets, im prob going to give it more of a satin finish then gloss anyway
