Hi Mark, glad to see you back and that you still have the guitar. Looking forward to the pics.
WOW!! Hi all, I have finally after nearly ten years of searching found an exact 62 neck to replace this one with. I have purchased this neck from the states, and now have it in SA with me with a master builder for restoration. What are the chances fo finding a 62 neck with the exact date, year and profile. So happy to finally put this one together in the right way.
Lovely age and beauty marks
Good things come to those who wait I guess!!
BTW, the new neck is from a hardtail strat eh?
not sure, this is the old neck.
If you look at the decal there are no patent numbers for the tremolo system. So probably a neck from a hardtail... Doesn't really matter, you found a neck...
ah yes, but i believe that the decal is incorrect and was a custom shop replacement which will have to go,
Possibly, but as @Mipstoo says, the hard tail logos were exactly like that. I don't know that I've seen a custom shop logo without the "with synchronized tremolo" tagline.
I wouldn't rush to remove that decal....
interesting, thanks for the advice and input, very valuable.
It's been a long time. I'm glad you kept the Strat. The new neck looks fine to me. That old rosewood grain looks just right. My Strat doesn't have the full transfer decal but I know it's an original.
Hi, Russ V. Where have you been? Don't hear from many of the old pre-CBS posters these days.
Good to hear from you!
thanks Russ, the neck is finally in my hands, wow! What a journey. We can start to put her back together.
Hope to see some pics!
