    That body looks very much like many of the vintage ones. I actually like yours a lot.

    I'm leaning your way. I think they're the exception, and not the rule. I know Tommy Rosamond would do a huge discount on a USACG neck if it had some of these mineral streaks. They don't bother me; they don't have any impact on function but I do worry that a subsequent owner would pounce on you when you went to sell.

    My CS Nocaster does't have any streaks

    Those are amazing. I had a 2018 Journeyman Relic and actually sold it mainly because I wasn't too crazy about the look of it. I regret that decision now and have been on the search for it's replacement. Mine had a beautiful neck that was a little thicker than all of the others I have seen which was desirable to me. Also it was 6.8 lbs.

    I saw the one guy from fender (Mike Eldridge maybe) in a video from NAMM stating that they were making a very small number of Nocasters this year, probably because they are doing the Broadcaster.

    They are nice and it makes sense, they cut Broadcaster manufacture short this year.

    I'm trying to think who FCS has that looks like Mike. Mike Eldred left in 2013, late 2013 I think. Which was a shame.

    So these streaks on the fretboard can have a negative impact on future resale value?

    No. It’s simply wood grain. It wouldn’t have any impact on my decision to purchase.
