Up for sale is a vintage 1970s Gibson Grabber G3 neck.
It's maple with a factory black painted headstock, with the serial number 962XXX and "Made in U.S.A" impressed on the back of the headstock.
The plastic truss rod cover says "G-3".
Original nut (as far as I can tell). and it's 1 5/8".
Original truss rod functions fine.
The original tuners are included (which are stamped "Gibson").
The original neckplate with 3 of the 4 screws is also included.
guitardaterproject.org says, based on the serial # and the "Made in U.S.A." on the headstock, the neck was made at the Kalamazoo or Nashville plant in 1970, '71 or '72. Wiki says the G3 didn't come out until '75.. so maybe it's a really early one.. or maybe it's a regular Grabber neck that someone switched the truss cover to a "G3".. or maybe it's just an example of how Gibson's serial numbers were very inconsistent in the '70s. Whatever the exact year, it's definitely vintage 1970s (and most likely pre-'75). It also has a good amount of finish checking on the back of the neck and the back of the headstock.
Overall it's in great shape for its age, with no major dings, just minor knicks and scratches. It sets up great with nice action and feels really good!
The only thing that isn't factory is that it's drilled for the Fender 4-bolt pattern also. I got it that way, but IMO, it's better since it opens up way more options for bodies to mate it to. You can still put it on a Grabber too and the Fender holes aren't visible when the neck is mounted.
