OK, I'm going to show my ignorance on woodworking and finishing techniques here, but... don't they finish the neck after roasting? Why couldn't they match the headstock then? Or is it that the wood would be too dark compared with the maple cap?Can't do a translucent finish matching headstock on roasted maple, unless they were going to veneer it.
