    Hi there,

    Hope everyone is doing well !

    A (hopefully) quick question. Can anyone advise if there any obvious labels or marks on a 2000/2001 USA tele body that would identify it as original Fender and not an aftermarket replacement ?



    Cheers !!

    Quite possibly there would be a part number stamp, tech's name and a date stamp in the neck pocket. Also a bar code sticker with the part number and paint code in one of the pickup routs. American Deluxe, Series/Standard would have microtilt.
    Pictures would help.

    Unfortunately no markers in the neck pocket...
