    Their all in place its just kind of an optical illusion in a way. The lines you see are actually maple. The lines you don't are Purpleheart against the ebony of his fingerboard. This is my favorite design aspect of Carl's. You can see the purpleheart if your close enough to the bass. Though if your not close enough your left going:confused: . ;)
