Hi, I have an old Strat trying to suss out what has been replaced. Neck and one original pot date guitar to 1974. Pickgaurd is repro. The neck plate doesn't have a gasket or "F" logo. Would a blank neck plate be original to the guitar?

It should be a three-screw neck plate with F logo and a serial number between 500000 and 580000.

Really good info here.

Oh, and my tag line has nothing to do with you, I swar :o)

It's a slam on earthlings--from the perspective of Yoopiter.

I know you're "Marshall."

Thank you Peegoo! That's right, this guitar was converted to a 4 bolt neck.

Axetremecreations.com have F logo neckplates, and will engrave a serial number. Or have a blank one if you have a concern about a serial possibly being seen as dishonest. I got them to put my initials in front of a serial number so that it is obviously not a Fender serial.

Actually it is a 1962-spec strat build, which is also my birth year, so I got my initials and 1962 which may be cheesy but I like it!

I got a customized neckplate with Jimi's birth date as the serial number. I have another with my birth date as the serial number. Not that I'm in the same league as Jimi, = )
