Let me guess, It has a maple cap instead of a solid maple neck too. I had one of these that I used on a build that I am currently working on. If you are going to use it then don't plan on using it as an interim neck until you get another one because it will be just as much work to reshim the pocket. Either just use the neck and take the decals off or wait. BTW, the one I am using has decals on it too but I am taking them off when I am done so I can put my own on.
