    Hm, weren't a few pics around - with the old SE necks that featured a skunk stripe - that, when checking the heel after removing them off the body, those weren't anything more than a small strip just working as an aesthetics thing?

    I believe the SE's were all rosewood with top installed truss rod

    Try taking 2 necks that are from the same model like a classic series 50s and the 60s and swap them on the same body and pickups and all. If you don't hear that i'd be shocked. Rosewood vs maple is IMO the #1 biggest factor with a strat or tele in determining how it will sound. It's nite and day to my ear. But if you don't swap necks you can never know what other things are influencing the tone so it's never obvious to you. As to maple cap vs one piece maple, I can't tell you that sounds much different or if it's even noticeable because as i said earlier i have only had 2. So it could be coincidence but they were the 2 best sounding maple necks i have owned.
