Korean pointy neck discolouration

Post by Sgt. Vimes on Tue Jul 23, 2013 8:42 pm

I've seen these marks quite a bit on the Korean Spectrum II, S-Series II and Clipper series necks, here's my sp5011

John has it on his 1012  below




board member Halo71 has this on his



there's more online that I can't find just now, can this be sweat and grime? heat maybe? are they all Korean? 

thoughts?

Thats the thickest oil finish I ever saw!
it's a shame though, the dark patch looks stunning up close, almost holographic...my next question would have been ......" how can I get the rest of the neck the same?"


hey ho

Sarge,

What can you tell me about the light blue Korean with the discoloration. I have one that looks to be exactly like it, not having much luck finding info on the Korean stuff. Trying to figure out when it was made, I picked it up dirt cheap and it's very near mint.

The color reminds me of the old fender seafoam green.

Mine appears to be an '88 also. From the 1988 US catalog:

http://westone.info/cats/88ltded/04.html

XA1330SBL with the reverse headstock
I can only find one tiny 1/8" scratch on the body (had to look like crazy to find it) and one 1/4" scratch not through finish on the back of the neck. All I need is a trem bar....
