Guitar changed your thinking about
Matte vs gloss?

I've never had a strong preference, but I've never liked how (with just a little heat and sweat) my skin sticks to gloss.  When I've ordered new guitars, they have been satin (or matte).

I agree with Ed, I typically prefer satin, especially for back of neck finish.  I have polished a few of my satins to a luster just to bring out the beauty in the grain...

No complaints about how Larrivee does their satin finish, but I still prefer gloss (I've owned several 03 series).

It's funny, I never have satin necks long.  From the nut to the 7th fret or so glosses up just from playing.

Don't really care either way as I have owned both,it was always about the feel and the tone.


Ed a light rubbing of 0000 steel wool will fix the glossing.

Thanks!  Though it was an observation, not a complaint!  Lol!

I get guitar's from players who complain about the neck feeling sticky which is just there hand oil and other assorted crud a few strokes of 0000 steel wool and bam all cured.Some have me regloss the neck some want to get rid of the shine so no buffing.
