    These are the only two images I have. It's the neck furthest on the right with no frets. Was going to look at it tomorrow. Thanks for any input.

    It could be a Jazzmaster neck. But its not a Strat.

    Correct Jazzmaster neck, indeed. If the seller's trying to pass it off as a strat neck, that's a concern.

    He listed it as a Strat neck but clearly stated that he didn't know if it was legit or not. I'm gonna pass on this information. Thanks again for all the input.

    Saw that on the Minnesota Craig’s list today and wondered about it too. It’s listed with a bunch of other EQ some parts for $600.
    Still interesting....

    The scale length is not correct.

    The '4' prefix is for Jazzmasters. a '1' would indicate Jaguar.
