Sanding neck
by yainkee on 2011-08-19 07:39:01

I just got the JTV-59. I like it but I dont like the glossy neck. Makes my hands stick to it. I want to sand off the gloss coating so it feels more like a satin finish. Will that void my warranty?

I can't speak for Line 6 but generally any modification to the instrument will void the warranty.  I know where you're coming from though, I hate glossy neck finishes.

If you sand the neck down, the "Wood (Lifetime) Warranty" will be voided yes.

The Electronic Components (1 year from date of purchase on receipt) shouldn't be affected.

Before you get the sand paper out, first try some 0000 (Very Fine) steel wool and just lightly work on the finish.  This will give you a satin finish without going all the way through the finish.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
