    I just bought a brand new Fender p bass neck off of reverb last week and when I received it today I noticed a few tiny cracks in the finish at the top of the skunk stripe on the back of the neck. I know it's a fairly common issue that skunk stripes will come out a little and it can be fixed. The skunk stripe does not appear to be lifting up from the neck. I can live with the cracks as long as they don't get worse. Should I not let it bother me or should I send it back?
  2. Depends on whether or not it will bother you. I probably would have never even caught that crack until a month down the road, and then not let it bother me...I’d probably have put an extra crack or two in it by then anyway...

    I don't think it will bother me, I can't feel it and I'm sure I could just refinish it If I wanted to.
