I bought this a few weeks back. I noticed that the fretboard looks like raw wood. The neck maybe too. I suppose its possible someone stripped it. Its cyk20 crafted in china I just put strings on it and pulled the pickguard to flatten it back out again. Are these 3 play pickguards worse than a single ply for warping? Interesting pickups. Never seen this brand. Squier specific? So I took a few pictures. Nothing special or spectacular. But it really looks bare wood.
