3 bolt necks started in 71.
Right. I have a 4 bolt 70. But with the bullet and 3 I could see mid to later 70s is what I am saying
1972 fender catalog,Only 1 string tree? my 77 had 2.
I also have 1 string tree
Although mine was my first brand new guitar and that will always be a nice memory. The thing was a boat anchor(must of had a few pounds worth of thickly applied Poly on it) and to me the neck seemed on the narrow up by the nut.
As an exam
That is without a doubt an early 70s neck!
I see what could be a screw hole for the second tree.
So POST '72, pre '81. Could be anything in between.
Neck date will tell the tale..pop it off!
What if it's a partscaster?
Then it's wood, body carving, markings, holes alignment...
As requested the back, etc.
And a few more from the front:
I'd bet if there was a neck stamp its been painted over from the look of it.
I'm guessing it's a '76 or newer.
My '75 Mocha Strat has the serial number on the neck plate.
I think Fender started putting the serial numbers on the headstock in '76.
I have a cool "What is it?" guitar story. I bought a POS guitar at a flea market. It had no visible markings other than a weird serial number on the neck plate and was modded badly. I got it home and I took off the neck. I found 1-58 written in pencil on the heel. It turned out to be a 1958 Musicmaster. What was done in my effort to get it up and running is a long and sad story.
