Fender Finish Question (Geetar Content)

Postby ampig » Thu Oct 25, 2012 6:24 am

Just bought the below Tele off Ebay
97 Am Std Telecaster
The back of the neck is a gloss lacquer but the front and rear of the headstock are flat/satin. I'm assuming the headstock has been sanded down. The seller claims not. Anybody got a definitive answer?

I can't remember which was used but I have seen several guitars with refin necks. Apparently slicker was better. Is there a clean break between the neck and headstock finshes?

All my basses and guitars that have satin finish eventually wear to a buffed shine from playing. Granted, only on the back of neck and where I rest my rt hand on the body or pivot, etc...

The body and back of the neck are gloss lacquer. The decal appears uneffected.
