    It is gorgeous. I would like to build something for my wife like that, with maybe a mint green pickguard, which I think looks great with CAR.

    Lovely! Mine is very similar but with a rosewood board (Fender) and a MIA body. It has no finish crazing/cracking. I love CAR!!

    Ah, I didn't realize that the logo was already on the neck. I thought you bought the logo so that you could get a specific neck. Thanks for explaining.

    There is often concern on this site about fake guitars, and this one falls into a grey area when it comes to being a genuine Fender, or simply looking like one.

    It’s definitely a topic to be treated seriously. Like you (I think) and a lot of other people here I don’t like to hear of Fender logos being applied to non-Fender guitars — but in this sort of case, where it’s a whole Fender neck, I think we have to accept that this is, as you say, a grey area and one which will rely on the integrity of the people concerned to keep any future owners clear.

    BTW - to @theprofessor — good work on a nice guitar! I like a good Candy Apple Red finish.
