    I'm new here so I hope this is the right forum. Just took the neck off my 1987 American Strat and have no idea what I'm looking at here. Any help would be appreciated. IMG_0594.JPG IMG_0595.JPG IMG_0597.JPG

    J Uribe stamp - means the neck was made by that particular factory worker. The rest is just internal QC type signoffs or parts checks.....

    He's a master builder now, or was if he's not with the company any more.....it's a nice stamp to have!

    I just had someone somewhere else tell me that this body couldn't possibly have gone with that neck. Apparently because it doesn't have a micro-tilt? How do you tell? IMG_0597.JPG

    I just noticed that myself too! Can you show us pics of the body cavity routing? have you ever taken the pickguard off?

    The micro tilt plate is on your neck, and there's a screw that applies pressure if needed, to change the neck angle....

    Most bodies look like this with the little plate and scre

    That is a Mexico Fender body and bridge.....sunburst, from a Mexico Standard Strat.....

    Looks like you have a partscaster....an American Standard would also have a 2 point bridge, not 6 screw....

    Guess it's a good thing I didn't pay a whole lot for it when I bought it.

    Yep, that neck alone is worth more than a complete MIM.

    Here's what the body should like like, my same 89, Pallares stamped:

    Nice all the random drill holes and stuff. Makes them unique.
