    So post them, I'd guess that would be your best bet if you want anyone to give an accurate assessment.

    Looks legit to me from the outside. Tuners are correct- they used ovals between 66-67, but I've seen a few 68's with them too.

    Legit. Especially if you claim it has a neck stamp.

    The early 68 headstock logo will have the "script" style, meaning it will have the metallic flake font with black border.
    In mid 68 they switched to the "TV" logo which a heavy black font with a faint gold border.

    Your pics look fine, nothing bogus I see. That neck stamp is the correct font.
