Hi, I'm new here and I started playing the guitar 4 months ago.

Anyway, I got a Birdseye Maple Lite Ash Strat, and I have a problem with the birdseye maple. I don't know if I'm crazy, but the pattern on the birdseye maple is really repulsive to me. I've seen other birdseye maple necks, but I just don't like mine. What do you guys think? Is it worth it to beg Sam Ash and ask them to exchange it for another one?

Thanks!

Annie

For reference, this is the model of my guitar

I have the telecaster version and love it.

I believe 100% that you shouldn't keep a guitar you don't like.

So, give them a call and see what they say.
