I’m very curious about the value of my
1968b fender telecaster neck. Appears to be in excellent condition. Thanks in advance.

It's worth whatever someone will pay for it.
There are online auction sites where you can get an idea of current monetary value.

There are VERY few 1968b fender telecaster necks for sale currently and I haven’t seen one that’s exactly like mine.

First thing I notice is that the frets need recrowning, the only thing is there's not a huge amount of fret height left, so a refret might be in order.
Who did the levelling job?
Why didn't they finish it?
Second, that the original tuners are long gone, and the usual botched job has been done.

Nothing unusual there.

I’m not sure about the history of it or leveling job. I found this piece cleaning out a hoarder house among a lot of other guitars and guitar parts. It seemed like he worked on them himself. My next thing to research is a 1971 Martin n-20. I don’t know a lot about guitars as I’m a drummer, but it’s fun looking at all this vintage stuff. Thanks for your info.

Wow, I'd love to see what were in his parts bins.
