Alright, a question for the older players(As in remembers the release of the stratocaster old) or those with pictures that are somehow in colour of pre-rosewood fretboard 50's strats. Were the necks back then tinted and when people say it gives it a "classic" look they mean it, or were they natural coloured like the pre-2008 MIM standards, and the necks are just tinted now because, due to age, the vintage necks have gained a tint?

The tinting is to give it a aged appearance.If I'm wrong oops.....

i dont understand your question, but after a certain amount of use, necks tend to stain where your hands rest most.

the amount and color of the stain depends on the chemicals used in finishing.

Colors on a guitar will get darker, tinted as it ages. Both neck and body. If you've ever taken the neck off a guitar thats 20+ years old you can see it where the neck was hidden in the neck joint. Kind of like a bad farmers tan

Some of the Models have specially tinted necks to look aged.I have a American Deluxe the tint makes it look like it has been hanging around for 50yrs
