American Standard Two-Piece Neck?
I was playing a US Standard Jazz the other day in the shop. It was a beautiful player and lovely sounding, but when I looked down I realised that the maple neck and finger-board were two pieces of wood glued together. Are all US Standards like that? It made no odds, I just didn't expect it. There were no other guitars for me to compare it to in the shop.
