    I wonder if that was made for something "other" than a fender spec body? Doesn't seem like something the "boogie-boys" would let out of the shop (remember, Van Halen had to literally PRY his neck out of their hands because it was a factory second). This is a STEAL no matter what it is!:)

    Thanks my Man!! Well... It was purchased from Lynn Ellsworth but is total Fender spec otherwise... It matches the overall length and nut placement of the other Boogie neck "to a tee"...

    It sounds like that to me- given the weird dot placement, it almost sounds like it might be a short-scale neck rather than an error. What is the distance between the nut and the 12th fret markers on the side of the neck?

    It appears to be a 21 or 22 "fret" neck... have you tried it with a Fender Deluxe body?

    I second that!

    I think it's probably for a Fender deluxe body...

    Unless my sense of proportion is way off... this photo seems to corroborate my assertion that this neck has more than 20 fret postions. If the side dot is aligned with the 19th fret position as you say, there is certainly room there for two more frets.

    I superimposed the end of a standard Fender fretboard next to your neck and scaled it to match the 17th and 19th fret position markers. Again, disclaiming something weird I am overlooking...your neck appears to be longer than a standard Fender 20 fret neck, it appears to have 21 available fret positions.

    What is the measurement from the nut to the heel? In every one of your pics...the side marker is further up the neck than the fretboard inlay...so either the FB inlays are off or the side markers are off.
