i have a 1996 american strat that has all the original neck and parts but the neck has been screwed up. ill elaborate, i got the guitar in 2001 and the finish on the neck was very dry, to the point where between some frets it actualy chipped off in small pieces, so i had it re finished, but it was not the best job. the finish is a very heavy lacquer that is so think it comes almost halfway up the medium jumbo frets which bugs the hell out of me. its almost has a "sticky" feel to it. my question is two parted actually. can this problem be fixed by sanding/would it even be a good idea? and if i got another neck would it be a bad idea re sale wise because the current neck has the "fender 50th anniversary" silver stamp on it? thanks guys.
