    my guess it is a subtle tinting of the neck. Would not effect the tone unless you are a member of the gear page and have exceptional hearing.

    They sound slightly nutty. With hints of cocoa.

    Looks like it gives the neck a very unique aesthetic quality. I would be interested to see if it makes the neck feel any smoother.

    I wonder if the "roasting" wears off with playing? Probably if it is unfinished?

    I would think there would be a laquer but I would also think cooking a lacquered neck would cause the wood to expand and the laquer to crack?
