Dating fender guitar necks
When I toured the Fender factory in California in 2001, there was discussion about a possible limited edition Custom Shop replica of Number One.At that time, it was suggested that there might be as few as four replicas made.
There has been a lot written about the Harmony Guitar Company, but there isn't a lot of information on these guitars. Many a guitar student started on one of their student instruments.These guitars have serial numbers, but they are NOT serialized 1 through 100.Each guitar John Cruz makes, regardless what kind of guitar, gets the next serial number in line. I do not see it as different from any other product - where there is a demand, someone is going to fill it.If, on the other hand, you have a counterfeit Fender, the fret ends will generally feel rough and uneven, and you will find rough, improperly finished lacquer. Examine the Fender logo and all the other words and icons on the headstock.The characters and alpha-numeric figures should be crisp and complete.
