I know the history of this neck since day one. It is an anomly of a neck. It is stamped B ( Precesion bass ) May ( month) 69 ( year ) and B ( neck size ). That would make it appear to be a May 69 P bass,but it isnt. The tuners are no name Klusons reverse wind. Never altered. It has pearl,not clay dots. It does not have frets,but the lines are cut into the fretboard. It never had frets. EVER ! It has a brass nut. It does not have the drill hole in back of headstock where the strap would go. The headstock decal is of the 69 vintage. What year do you believe this neck is actually from? It is not a May 69 neck. I was bought in May 69 however. I look forward to your replies. If any people should figure this out,it is on this forum. I know the date of the neck and will relate how it came about after your replies. Neck has a lot of wear ,but machine heads which are original are very clean.
