    Hello, I own a fender MIM 2007 with an unfinished fret board ( doesn't have a gloss finish on the fret board)

    I used to own a 2011 MIM that have a gloss finish on it.

    I wonder which models include the finished fret boards?

    does it used to have a finish back in the days because i recently bought it?

    thanks!

    It's probably a matte finish. Fender doesn't ship unfinished necks.

    As the above posters mentioned, the neck is most likely a satin or matte finish, if it is truly raw wood, it can not be a factory neck.

    But we still love guitars, so pics if you have them!

    Looks like a satin finish

    Unfinished would have no shine at all

    Enjoy it

    I agree with the other members there sure is finish on the neck.

    The finish can be - from shiniest to the least shiny:

    High gloss, semi-gloss or satin (matte), I believe it is a satin finish also.

    Now I have a neck you would swear is unfinished, but it was a CS limited production Pro model with oiled satin neck finish. It feels like unfinished.

    Yeah, it's finished. Look at the dots. Might be scuffed up a bit.
