Hi everybody.

Just have bought JM body on ebay. Seller said it's from 1965. Though it's been refinished (really ugly, I must say) in white. So no info left on the body. This is my firs JM experience and first vintage guitar experience, as well.

So, I need some advices, if you don't mind.

1) How can I find out thaat it's really from 1965?
2) There are some cracks on the body.
3) I've sanded body a little bit on the neck connection side - there's carved name MARK RAVELO and number (I think it's 575-02-3728) - What is it?

Thanks in advance!
