P-90 vs HB Neck & Cavity

I recently came across P-90 Goldtop and the space between the end of the neck and front pup cavity seems "off".

My question is this: On an HB, the end of the neck is not flush with the front pup cavity and the pup ring covers this. On a P-90, it appears the P-90 cavity rout is moved forward and the neck fits more flush with the cavity as well, but it's not filled and finished. The one I found looks like someone filled the area as it's completely finished like the top, no seams and smooth.

Could this be a re-neck, a fake or is it correct (depending on year)?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Try posting some pictures, it's hard to tell what you're talking about. Are you saying the Neck protrudes into the Pickup cavity? Or is there evidence that the cavity has been re-routed?

Last: Excellent photo! The P90 guitar is with the seller so no picts - it has a gap between the front neck cavity and end of the neck of app. 1/8" - almost the same gap a HB has. However, yours shows the pickup cavity is almost flush with the end of the neck.

That's what I was looking for! I thought it looked off.

Thanks for your help. :applause:
