I am very tempted to send mine in to be glossed as well. Can you please explain what the "rosewood neck treatment" includes?

> We have a procedure which will not only condition the neck, it will make it feel as smooth as polished marble. The procedure takes quite a while to complete because there are multiple steps involved, but the results are amazing

I had this service done to one of my BRW McCartys. It was well worth it.

I cant wait. I almost had this all done a year ago and waffled because I didnt want to mess with a stock original ME, but at the end of the day, its not going anywhere, and if it makes it more playable, Im in..

That looks awesome...now I'm thinking about sending my 59/09 in. I didn't know about the rosewood treatment, and I'm always up for extreme awesomeness \m/!!

As a fellow 59/09 owner you've got to show a picture, I love to see as many of these beauties as I can!

Will do - I'll start a 59/09 thread:) I know there were a few 59/09 players at BAM who had some beauties.

I think I'm in for the rosewood neck treatment/awesomeness:)

i did an "awesomeness" treatment myself.
very fine sanding with rounding the fretboard edges and customizing the carve to my needs
and special oil finish - no wax!

Heres the before, can't wait to see the after. I decided on 57/08 bridge, 53/10 neck. Black pickup rings, knobs, etc..

Is the neck treatment the same as the 'Private Stock Finish' you can now spec on your PS RW necks??

The BRW neck treatment (of Extreme Awesomeness) is different than what is used on East IRW necks.

Is this RW treatment in any way similar to the EB "gunstock oil/wax" finish? Or is this more down to handpolishing the wood
to the level of a Japanese swordblade (I've read they even use oil mixed with horse hair for the really fine blade polishing).

All I can say is wow. It looks absolutely amazing. Difficult to photograph, but amazing. Love the 53/10 neck 57/08 bridge combo. The split tones when played together are some of my favorites. Haven't had a lot of time as I spent the weekend doing home improvement, but as I will manage to capture some good shots and offer a better tone report.

Guys, this is beautiful but I'm still torn about doing this to my original '94 ME1(one piece top, red tiger). Love the gloss. What exactly do they do to the neck. I like the neck the way it is. Also, what's it cost?
thanks again, (also I couldn't figure out how to get a pic in here. The insert image wants a URL. The pic is on my C:drive.

I was torn also, but it turned out amazing. The neck feels amazing... I know I am never selling this guitar. If you might sell yours, I'd probably hold off, just because it won't be "original".
