    I got my sherwood green classic vibe 50s strat in mail through amazon and down the neck along every fret under the gloss you see im guessing fret markings? I'm curious if any of you would accept this? I never seen this on any guitar i came in contact with.

    Very noticeable in normal light i dont think the picture shows it enough. Every thing else seems ok frets are a little rough. Comparing it to my cv 60s its deplorable i guess.

    I've seen that happen before. You are seeing where the fret slot was cut all the way across the neck then filled after the frets were installed. I have the sms thing in a couple of mine. Here is one

    I think there's nothing to worry about. As it has been said, It can be seen on lots of guitars, even on mine :thumb:

    So what are those colored lines in the middle of the frets?

    Those lines on my neck that I'm showing here are where I marked it for side markers. I am using a left handed neck on a right handed guitar to make a reverse headstock Tele so I used a fine pencil to mark the position of the dots on what would normally be the bottom, now top, of the neck.

    Filler has been used to cover the ends of the fret tangs.

    Not only is it nothing to worry about, it's a good thing. They cut the fret tangs slightly short, and fill in the slots. This prevents fret sprout. My CV '50s is the same.

    Every maple neck CV I've played had those visible fret tangs. 2008, 2009, 2012 and I think a 2016.

    No problemo.

    I wonder why only classic vibe. My vintage modified maple neck is fine and standard squire is fine as well. My 60's burgundy is almost perfect except for one of the screws that hold the output jack plate is stripped.

    For what I can see, this is a very good worked neck.
