  2. Don't think that Fender quarter saws their necks. Did they ever? I think it was Leo that came up with the idea...but wasn't that at G&L when he did that?

    But I could be totally wrong on all this. But again, if Fender quarter-saws their necks, I've never seen it in their literature.

    i think they're flat sawn necks that are glued together via the face of the grain ... similar to butcher block countertops ?? at least my fender is.

    I'm pretty sure they are flatsawn. They're reissues so they're like the original necks.

    What's the inlay material used for the black blocks? Is is plastic or painted maple or something else?

  8. Bog standard Fender necks are flatsawn. Custom Shop beauties can be had with quartersawn necks though.
