    Ola.. tudo bem...:D

    a few clues I look for...

    *most US Fenders have a tilt screw in the neck pocket... not all, but most...

    Mex bodies usually have the "M" bar code sticker in the neck pocket and 3 "mickey mouse ear" holes under the pickguard...no tilt screws in the pocket..

    I hope this helps a bit....:D
