    I LOVE mine. 2008 Artist in Santana Yellow. All stock and sounds really clear and sweet. Best sounding CU24 I have ever heard, including some very early and PS examples.

    I’ve wondered the same thing. I’ve seen over-treated wood get soft enough that a fingernail can easily scrape a line into the wood.

    If the fretboard is soft, guess what happens to the tone? It’s like having a rubber fretboard. Not a good plan.
