I got this neck as part of a bass I bought for a project. I only needed the body so I took it off right away. It shows some wear. General nicks and scratches and two string dents under the E string at the F and F# frets. Here is the California description: Manufactured from 1997 to 1998 by Fender, the California Series Stratocaster, Telecaster and bass models were a joint effort between the company's factories in Corona and Ensenada. The body and neck parts were made in the United States while the finishing and painting was done in Mexico before their final assembly and quality control in the US. (The neck is adjusted with 3/16" allen wrench rod suggesting that it was manufactured in Mexico.) $150 shipped ConnUS. PayPal.
