The table below shows the Fender serial numbers as they were used from 1950 to 1964.
The serial numbers in principle chronological, but as already mentioned, as a result of Fender's production, there are a several serial numbers that overlap.
The neck is a Fender MIM neck with no visible signs of alteration- the serial number dates to a 2000-2001 model.
The guitar also has a Seymour Duncan humbucker and locking tuners.
The table below shows the serial numbers as they were used from 1965 to 1976.
When I took the neck off there were several markings on the neck pocket: FEB 16 2001?? 37R(B or D)29547And one more that I can't make out.
Just wondering if any of these marking are normal for Fender bodies- I've been doing some searching around the net and I haven't found much.
Fender's production methods from the early fifties had the effect the numbers may not be consecutive.
Also overlap of serial numbers and dates come with regularity.
