Can anyone identify this neck?

Can anyone tell the manufacturer of this neck? I previously thought it was Allparts, but I’m not sure.
The hardware isn’t original, and the headstock has been refinished.

It’s been replaced with a Fender 60s “American Original” Jazzmaster neck.

Looks like a Fender neck to me.
So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.

^ Me too.

Definitely not Allparts, their logo is burnt/etched into the heel.

I can’t find any Fender neck with blocks and bindings that has headstock truss rod access... Hmmm

Yeah, exactly what that neck would be, I have no idea. But having pulled any number of Fender necks you see that kind of stuff on pretty much all of them. If that's not a Fender neck, someone went through some trouble to make it appear like a Fender neck even at the heel markings. Either that or they use the exact same kind of warehouse/factory system that Fender uses with the same markings.

Modern neck with blocks and binding.. could be from a Japanes JM66b or a Troy van Leeuwen. Van Leeuwen has the date on the bottom of the heel tho', between the neck screws so my money would be on the JM66b.

Could it be a vintage modified Squier?
