    I am confused ...
    I think this is a '81 Bullet USA neck ...
    but it has a '65 transition Telecaster logo?
    '65 serial number - add an E and it's a '81 Bullet?
    Please check out the pics?
    thanks, Spoons

    Sticker is all wrong - position and '65 wouldn't be on top of a plain headstock, be under orange nitro by now. It's possibly a bullet neck with repro sticker.

    it's hard to tell, but I think I see the old tree hole under the logo ... it's a Bullet for sure, but still a great neck!
    any idea why there's no 21 fret dot on these necks? I have only seen this on '81 Bullets?

    I held a bullet once. Seemed I like the neck. Rock on.

    An original 1965 Fender neck would have a dated ink stamp at the end of its heel...
