Is there some sort of way to knowing what finish the neck will have on a SSS fender strats? (MIM or MIA).
I've asked to play so many strats recently, including two or three of exactly the same models but the neck finishes vary from that heavy gloss/varnish finish (which I love) to the natural wood look with just a protective layer finish which feels awful.

Reason im asking is because I would like to buy an SSS model once I find the one im looking for but I dont want to buy a post-display one - but im afraid once I order the model it wont have the varnish finish.
Always waiting for that bit of inspiration.
