    Hi all-

    I found this in an antique mall attached to what I was guessing was a very non-original body. The neck itself looks and feels right for, I'm guessing, early to mid-70's? Sadly, no evidence of neck stamps and a non-original neck plate mean I don't have a simple way to date it.

    Any ideas on what year it is?

    Thanks in advance!

    Looks fake, logo looks iffy and no date on back of neck, not to mention the truss rod slot doesn’t look like it’s for a screwdriver.

    Thats a decent copy.
    Wrong tuners, truss rod nut, radius is slightly different at the heal, and the binding hasn't yellowed.
