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

    From prs..."
    > 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..

    Timmy,

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