    Correct...they'll have a date stamp, but the serial number is always on the neck plate.

    I saw this for sale somewhat locally to me as part of a partscaster. Just want to make sure it’s not listed twice somewhere

    Seems flat (12 inches), seems quartersawn, is it missing the string tree on the headstock?

    It looks fine, but others may know better. I only removed my EJ neck once and didn't take pics...

    The neck should be thick with a soft v profile.

    EJs have no string tree. The tuning posts get shorter.

    I don't have a pic of the headstock. A guy is selling basically a complete EJ with a genuine Fender replacement body. These are the other pics I have. The guitar is in New York, where I'll be this weekend. Only interested though if the neck is real. Always looking ahead...... Guess I'll have to try and get my hands on it.

    Well it’s missing the neck plate which is where the serial # would be and it may be the light but that looks like a three piece body and EJs are two piece. Also the block doesn’t look quite right, the holes look too deep. The EJ has a shallow drilled block and you can see the ball ends as they are barely below the top of the hole.

    It's a Fender replacement body. The guy wants $600 which seems fine as long as the neck is legit.

    This is what an EJ neck plate looks like, mine does.

    Yeah I started a thread years ago about the guy on that plate. He's a sex deity or something.

    Yep, a Kokopelli, a fertility symbol. Usually shown with a flute, but in EJ’s case, with a guitar. Maybe the idea is if you play an EJ, you turn into a guitar god (or goddess) and that makes you a sex symbol as well.....

    Mine does not seem to have had that effect on me....

    Not sold after all. This is the headstock. Looks like someone added a string tree if it’s real.
