Can anyone help me with this Squier?

I just bought this as a Squier Telecaster... its a greyish white with blueish woodgrain visible - is this a variation of arctic white? No serial number or any markings on the neck. Pickguard is minty green. Back of neck is a really orange gloss. Could the neck have been replaced, considering it has no logo or anything?

I love the colour, thinking of swapping the neck for a nice satin maple one, changing all the hardware. Any ideas?

If anyone's interested, I pulled the neck off and there's no markings underneath. Could be a partscaster, though I was told it is a Squier.

Looks like a partscaster. Some of the CVCs have orangy necks, but then there'd be the logo, or at least evidence the logo was there.

Looks like a nice partscaster to me. At least the neck doesn't look Squier. Also I've never seen that color before. Bridge looks to be high quality and are those dome knobs?

I'd pull that control plate off and look underneath. Give us a gut shot of the pots, caps and switch. I'd be willing to bet it's a higher quality partscaster but I've been wrong.
