I don't think it's dye. It looks like it might be some chemical discoloring. Bleach or solvent? I'd wondered if the silverbursts neck were bound like some other models. Maybe it's a glue reaction or something used to clean, or or or.... I don't think they have a background in this area. They're prob just looking at images of similar style guitars & thinking "that's close enough". Close enough doesn't work on bridges obviously. Despite my critical introduction I hope these guys get it sorted. It's awesome that someone has tapped our "cheap guitar want" with styles other than teles/strats/LP's. I'm pulling for an SG Jr, but that body would be a tall order from them. That cotton candy looking LP belongs in an ICP video.
