    Luke iii Neptune Blue question

    Hello. I'm looking at a used Luke that is advertised as Luke iii Neptune Blue. But it had a rosewood fretboard. I thought all the Neptune Blue PDN Luke's were maple? Did some come in rosewood or is the seller selling a regular Luke?

    Shhhhh, i don't want to spread the word on it if it's a good deal. Sometimes GC doesn't know what they have. I once bought a Mesa IIC+ from those lunkheads for $999 because they thought it was a Mark iii.

    You could order either wood on the fretboard.

    I just noticed if you scroll down and read the overview they mention damage from shipping which is reflected in the price. I guess that's why it seems like a good deal. Of course they're not showing the damage in the pic.

    If you call them, they will send you pics of whatever you ask for.

    Not convinced it is neptune blue. Looks like a current BFR blueberry burst to me....

    Get serial number and ask customer service what it's supposed to be.

    Hard to tell if it is a neptune blue or not, mine our a lighter shade and you can see the mahogany grain.

    Neptune Blue varied in lightness quite a lot. Some are almost black in a dimly lit room.

    Did that, but I spoke with the store and they said there is a really bad crunch on the back. The guy on the phone was honest and said he wouldn't buy it.
