    I have had my Les Paul since 2002, and I recently decided to sand the neck down a bit to see if it makes playing smoother. It did. I liked the way it looked and felt so much I decided to give the same treatment to the rest of the guitar. Love it even more now. Here's my heavily modded LP Studio.

    All I did was take off all the hardware, sand it a bit with fine sandpaper, and then with fine steel wool. It now glows in the sunlight, instead of shining like a mirror. Very pleased.
