(for nitro finish). And should you not spray the heel? I saw youtube tutorial and guy said don't finish the heel. What should you use to sand the finish between frets?

Guess I'm a little different, I usually spray the back of the neck with
3-4 coats. For the fingerboard, I use Tru-oil. I do spray the heel to protect it

Others might shoot 3-4 coats over the whole neck, cure a week,wet sand and polish. If carefull spraying, there should be no reason to sand between the frets. File a penny the shape of the frets and it to scrape each fret clean of nitro.

Just my suggestions others may add their experiences.
