Got this beauty for only 790 Euros yesterday. A bit banged up, but all parts are original. No whammy bar though...
Sounds great, the neck on the lower frets is really thin though, it plays like a children's guitar...

Weird - I would have guessed that as a Duo-Sonic neck, and it has no MUSTANG on the decal. Does it have an 8 on the heel stamp?

From what I've read the 64 Mustangs put the decal for the logo on top of the lacquer. That's why it went off. You can see a tiny black dot where the M used to be. Neck stamp says Okt. 1964 B, not sure about the heel stamp. I don't wanna unscrew it again...

Aha, that's a much more likely explanation than some mystery Duo-Sonic neck becoming attached to it!

it's definitely not a duo-sonic II neck, looking at the decal. here's my '64:



however, i've never seen or heard of a 1964 mustang with a B width neck, only As.

The numbers under the decal for a 64 should be:

Headstock numbers (early '64): DES. 186,826 PAT. 2,960,900 2,741,146 & PAT. PEND.
Headstock numbers (late '64): DES. 186,826 PAT. 2,960,900 2,741,146 3,143,028 & PAT. PEND.

Yes, they match. You can't really see the numbers on the posted pictures.
