The neck is in good,clean,'as' new condition.
Purchased off ebay,ex Indonesia,so i think we know who we are talking about here.
Wrapped in 3m Dinoc 1080 Carbon Fibre with a Fluro Orange IB JM sticker.
Below is a list of the imperfections,generally not associated with a new product.Wether it was Transit Damge,i am unsure,but generally i would say this is a 'Factory Spoiled' fail.
Scuff/Dint marks apprix 75mm long and 3mm wide along,approx 7 or 8 of them,scratches etched.Into finished and slightly into wood.
Top of the Fretboard,slight scuff.Noticable.
Few semi-deep scratches/scuffs also back of neck.
Slight chip on 3rd Peghole on back.Un-noticable,will be covered by Tuner.
Resin stain on side of neck at top.
Noticable 'dark' dirt-like staining around back of neck.Will require light scuffing/ sanding to remove.Maybe.
Other than that:
PERFECT Rosewood Grain,very happy with the selection.Looks great.Quite dark,but oiled it will look even better.
PERFECT new frets,straight as,beautifully polished,angled and finish.Level check at 9/9.5 out of 10.Fat as a 6105.
Nice grain on the back,well presented.Scratches and nicks withstanding.
Overall 'happy' with purchase,except a litle disapointed that the back of the neck isnt perfect.The nicks and scratches are noticable.So i cannot class this as being 'new'..
The dirt-like staining is also an issue.
I am happy with the purchase,extremely happy with the neck,save for the imperfections.
Bang for buck,GR8 value and GENUINE all the way.
