Interesting. My Baja had a bit of that, so I bought some 400 to 900 grit nail files where my wife gets her cosmetics and smoothed them down. Are American necks made differently, so this doesn't happen? For example, I notice the '52 AVRI has a coated neck. More so than the Baja. Does that seal it better?
