If you say its not a good idea your full of shit, its epic. So i always remove the gloss from the back of the neck on my guitars without satin necks. Its much "faster" and you could certainly buff it back to shine/gloss if you ever wanted to which i know from experience doing drop fills and having to buff the finish back afterwards. So heres the idea.....Leaving rectangles of gloss only behind the fret markers in the shape and size of the fret above it. My ltd doesn't have front facing fret makers and i like it that way. I rarely need them but if im doing a large jump and its a confusing part having side dots certainly helps even the more advanced players. 90% of the time they arent necessary unless your a beginner but imagine how easy it would be to traverse the neck if you could "feel" the fret markers in the form of gloss. The gloss is just sticky enough that you could slide over it if you want or allow your thumb to get "caught" on it if you want. Anyways, i think ill try it on one of my guitars. Id imagine that this has to have been done in some way before. I realize its not for everyone and at first it might feel weird but i think it wouldnt take long untill it was something that really improved consistency of large scale jumps up or down the fret board. Thats all, that one was free but the next one is gonna cost you lol.
