Not impossible IMHO: the transition to that neck joined happened in 1966, as did transition to large pickguard, but I don't think they necessarily happened at the same time..

Can't be a 65 - there were still some in 66 with the earlier no-lip late 65 neck pocket. (Not confusing at all!)

Do you mind if ask you why cannot it be a 65?
I wonder this because there is a 65 marked on the pots..

If not a 65? Do you suggest it is a 66 then?

Pots only give you a lower bound if original. My '65 has '63 pots. I'm on a phone so no pictures, but the neck heel changed shape in middle of '65 from a 'lip' to 'no lip' version and again in '66 to this long transition version. The changes just happened through the year, there wasn't a distinct yearly model like now.

Just don't drink the stuff - You may lose your mind, the ability to speak English, and join any random forum to preach it's said benefits! :beer::hmm:

EDIT: Ok, now I look like I've lost my mind! :)
The moderator's deleted the post before me which prompted my response. Some spam for a medical remedy or something.
Carry on....
