I recently bought this neck along with the matching body and hardware. Everything except the original pickguard, controls and pickups.

I was told by the seller what it was and have searched online for examples. What I found seems to confirm what I was told. In order to maintain objectivity, I'll save my thoughts for a little later. However, I chose a Greco forum, so that goes some way to revealing my thoughts.

There are no markings whatsoever and the decals were removed long ago.

It feels like a "D" profile, maybe a chunky "C". Looks like a smaller radius fretboard, 7.5". Definitely no bigger than 9.5". I'm no expert on either. The tuners and one piece bridge assembly are stamped/cast with "Japan". All hardware shows signs of age.

Hopefully these pics will jump out to someone. Thanks.

Just by the tuners alone i'd say it's a lower end model. Pre 1980 probably. Does it have 4 screws or 3 ??

Thx for the reply.

4 screws.

Tuners are much more solid than the current versions, but are definitely lacking..

Which model is the question I have. It's a very nice piece, so I don't know how low end it is.
Early 70s is the closest I've seen, but so many years look the same. 72-73 maybe??
