    Is that what this is?
    I understand it has no impact on structural integrity
    and other than looking like a big crack I like the unique "organic fingerprint" on my guitar.

    Any thoughts about this???

    it looks like the remnants of a branch....
    I usually don't see it on Squiers but on cheaper guitars.

    I guess my Squier has the "cheaper neck".
    Thanks :)
    Any other opinions out there????

    Both of my CV Squier's are flamed. This is the first I have seen with those marks

    My guess is that the neck wasn't fully dried and that it could be a sap line below the finish. It is unique and I like unique in a guitar, so I would embrace it.

    Is that one of the new Bullet Telecasters? In that case, it might explain part of the lower price.
