What can you tell me about the neck on Fender's Telemaster? I'm wondering about the finish. I know it's relic'd, but what was the original finish of the neck? Because it doesn't look as dark as some, or as light as say the neck you get on a squire tele. I want a very similar neck, for well, my own Telemaster build as a treat this Christmas. Thanks.

The headstock looks darker than the frets, I assume that is as a result of the relicing?
Well, lighter necks are poly.
'Darker' necks are old nitro.

Because it's relic'd, the finish is still new, so I'll be betting it's a nitro finish.
