Any Blackjack owners out there? Wondering if the maple neck is lacquered or painted like the other models?

I'm a bit of a Shecter fan, as I own a C-1+... but the 1 issue I have with them, seems to be a common issue.. the lacquered necks. My local dealer doesn't have this model in the store at the moment.
