The nitro was rubbed off the back of the neck & the neck hand oiled. No wood was removed. Nice thin, fast neck. All work was done by a proffessional guitar repair shop in San Francisco. Just had a fret level & dress and a full set-up with Rotosound 11's. Nice low, clean action (.050 on the bass side & .040 on the treble, 12" bridge radius & .006 of relief) Has a small amount of buckle rash on the back and a few minor dings, but nothing through the finish. Incredible quilt top- finish is Root Beer. Will ship same day as sale and send UPS tracking number immediately after. Free shipping to contiguous 48 only.
