I wonder how thick that cap is? Do the frets rest entirely within the cap? Under the cap, is there a void where the truss rod is or is the truss rod set lower so that it’s solid above it?
Would like to have one in hand to inspect.
the old school vintage Fender maple cap necks don't pop up much these days so, seeing one in person is gonna be uncommon, IMO.
I have a Fender Japan maple cap neck buried deep in a pile of Strat cases; haven't seen that guitar in a coons age, and I have no idea how close to original spec it was produced. One day, when I have some spare time, I could dig through the pile, and see what the construction looks like.
