Hey guys, I just picked up my 1964 Mustang from GC and am getting ready to open her up to check everything out to see if it's legit. I have three days to return it if anything is wrong. The main thing that I am worried about is the neck plate. The serial number is 628XX but does not have the "L" before the number like other Pre-CBS Mustangs all seem to have. The number seems offset a bit like there is space for the L, but it is not there. Do any of you guys know if this is an original 64/65 neckplate? I know the serials until 63 had no "L", but I have a hard time believing that the plate would be that much older than the guitar, especially considering I've never seen another 64/65 without the "L." I'll try to upload a few pics when I get a chance. Thanks!
