It's called a skunk stripe and it has to do with the way the neck is constructed.

Are they made without them, or are they needed?



It's just a way of constructing the neck; some companies also use this method, some others don't.

It Is where there put the truss rod, i think.


That's what I thought too. In that way of constructing it, is that where the truss rod goes?

They make the neck, then route out for the truss rod, then cover it with a skunk stripe. Some other companies make the route for the truss rod, then cover it with the fingerboard.

You can route the truss rod slot before putting on the fretboard.
