Just wanted to update this thread and confirm Z's excellent testing advice and that it worked. Of those 4 necks shown in the pic I posted, all failed except the one on the right which is a Fender licensed Mighty Mite neck.
I've told my brother to stop shipping any unmarked necks and to only ship any bodies or complete guitars if he has any.
