    I have a mod shop telecaster ordered and it will have a roasted maple neck and fingerboard. It will have the deep C professional telecaster profile. Anyone have one? And do you like it?

    good question. i was also curious about those necks. specifically, wondering if Fender ships those completely unfinished? or are they satin urethaned?

    I just ordered a bass neck and a tele neck from warmoth. I can’t wait. I have an old bass body and I put a Seymour Duncan quarter pounder In it. The tele neck is going on a 72 thinline reissue with Fralin WRHBs! I’m super excited. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    I don’t think they have an applied finish. The roasting process is the only finish.

    This is what Fender does to their roasted maple necks.

    The maple fingerboard and headstock face receive a gloss urethane finish, while the back of the neck gets a position shift-friendly satin finish.

    Found this on the internet. So it must be true.
