    Default Fender history mystery on 1959 no-dated necks

    Does anybody know the dirt on why leo fender stopped neck dating in 1959 and i don't want to hear the same little tidbit about profanity on a neck butt. I want to know the whole story if anyone really knows. Was it a word or drawing on the neck but that pissed ol' leo off. Was the misguided individual identified and did anybody get fired? What is the last known neck dates for '59? I am interested in purchasing an early '59..... Hope someone knows something and threads back

    Sorry, I can't help you with that one!
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Some one was writing [COLOR=black]MIM[/COLOR] on the neck butt and really Pi$$ed [COLOR=black]leo[/COLOR] off Ive been going through A book called the [COLOR=black]Stratocaster[/COLOR] Chronicles. It's a great Book by Tom Wheeler and a pretty complete history. Haven't found anything on this topic yet but still looking. It's been a while since Ive read it and don't remember anything about this, but I'll keep you posted
