    why do some have skunk stripes and some don't?

    i'd like to see a maple jazz with binding and blocks without the skunk stripe.
     
  2. Usually the stripe is where the truss rod was installed on a solid(one piece, no separate fretboard) neck. The rod channel is routed, the rod installed, and a strip of wood glued in to cover it. The rear is the only way in on a one-piece. Otherwise the channel is routed(on the front side) and the rod is installed before the fretboard is glued on. It's become a styling feature on some two-piece necks.
