new guitar neck squeak

Recommended Posts

Recently got this H-150 which has proved to be a brilliant guitar. It's the actual one you may have seen reviewed on Guitar.com:

https://guitar.com/review/electric-guitar/review-heritage-h-137-h-150/

only very minor irritation is that my hand squeaks against the neck when I'm playing it. Only annoying at low volumes as it doesn't affect the plugged in sound in any way.

Is this a feature of the nitro finish ? does it go way in time ?

Keep playing and the Nitro should wear nicely. Some folks like to use 0000 steel wool on the back of the neck, but I wouldn’t. Again, over time you’ll get the “glossy” off just by playing. Just another part of making it your own.

There could be a mouse in the neck.  I would definitely get it checked while it's still under warranty. B)

 

Oh, and congrats on a sweet 150!

Definitely no mouse - that is a relaxed cat.  Beautiful guitar.

60 grit sand paper on a belt sander will cure it... not sure if it will be visually appealing though....

How old is it? I've only had one of two "new" nitro guitars, and it can take about a year for that feeling to go away. Once it's gone though, it's gone for good.

I was completely joking.... I’d really use a bit of fine steel wool.
