The market research should show that buyer's don't like a very pale ghostly neck, not this.I presume market research tells Fender consumers want very saturated neck (and butterscotch blonde) tints but I think it looks terrible and bears little relation to what actual aged Fenders look like.
I'd much prefer to buy a reissue that looks like a brand new guitar right out of 1963 (or whenever).
These seem a bit overcooked. Like they stayed too long in the tanning bed. Or had one too many spray tans. We have all known someone like that in our lives. And they usually looked better a bit more natural.
