1) What's the most effective and safe way to clean a stratocaster's aged maple neck?
2) And do you use the same thing of what you use to clean a maple neck to clean a stratocaster's body or strings?
3) I found my maple neck extremely sticky that my fingers, esp my thumb at the back of the neck, it gets stuck so often when I play solo up and down the neck, this is one thing that's really bothering me, is there any solution to make a maple neck smoother?
(ps. isn't steel wool / sandpaper going to hurt and leave scratch / scar on the maple neck?)
