    Looks like a real guitar neck to me . Seriously doubt that Fender made that headstock .

    Not a Fender.

    If you don't know this, you shouldn't be buying used guitars at all.

    I hope you didn't give much for it.

    Agreed.
    Not a Fender neck.

    I agree also that the headstock is shaped like a Warmoth Warhead, though the truss rod aperture looks wrong.

    Finally, the gold hardware is butt-ugly.

    :(

    Odd looking headstock, definitely not a Fender.

    I will say that this is the first time in my life I've ever seen a Fender decal placed on a headstock that is in no way similar to a Fender headstock. Whoever did this was probably doing it as a joke - It actually is kind of funny, but in a cool kind of way. Sort of like an inside joke of sorts.

    Another thing I've never seen before until yesterday, is a Fender body with a Squier neck on it. Usually, it's the other way around.

    Merhaba, Mehmethan. Welcome. Learning is for all of us. As noted, that headstock shape is not a Fender thing. Also, the truss Rod access is not correct for any Fender Telecaster.

    It's probably not a Fender body either, could just be the Squier body or even a GFS or something .
