This blue streaking is showing up in different areas of this neck
you mean that dark straight line? i guess it could be a mineral streak, but i've never seen one that precise before. you should post more pics of the neck where it occurs, since it's really hard to tell what it could be just from that one photo.
The smugy looking thing could be, the pencil line not so much.

This should be better
First, am I correct in assuming this is on the headstock Paul? If so, has it been thinned yet? That does have a bluish haze to it, making a mineral steak unlikely but not impossible. Could you wipe it down with mineral spirits and post another picture? I'm hesitant to say without these facts in hand. One thing I'm pretty sure of...........I'd make a neck out of it anyway
Looks like a burn mark.
I vote pencil line. Did you try erasing it? Naphtha works well.
It on the heel, headstock and showed in flat and endgrain. I have sanded and wiped but it stays. This is the top of the headstock
Hmmmm, try brushing on a little Chlorox with an old toothbrush. If it changes color or comes off, it's likely mold :neutral:
I have tried Clorox and Oxiclean with negative results. So I am starting over on a new neck. This is a bass for a friend and it has to be perfect. The maple may have been a little too bright for this bass.
I have some Walnut and Canary I might try.
yes it's a mineral streak…
I have a book matched maple cap with a lot of blue in it. Very unusual and cool.
