Even then you are really only ruling out dates older than the neck. you could have an N2XXXXXX neck that was made in 1992 that was not assmebled into aguitar til 1994. If you can take the neck off or take it to someone competent to do so you will find date stamps on the neck and body in the neck pocket.

there are date codes on a lot of the other parts too
so make notes of all numbers you find on the parts
