1 Daddy Dog 2 years ago Not on a Gretsch, but on a Gibson 335. I think I'd like to do it more. I wouldn't mind if I took it right down to seeing some wood. I'd be interested to hear how long it took you, and if it was just the blue Scotch Brite pad.Funny that I have glossy neck Gretschs, but they've never felt sticky. Only on the 335.
