    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.

    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....
