Smile JS Neck

Can any other Ibanez neck be put on a JS body with an AANJ?
I don't like the JS neck but I like the body.
It reminds me of a Tele neck.
Wizard or JEM Neck?

Re: JS Neck


as per this ^ it looks like u can as long as the heels are the same size - and as long as they're the same number of frets!

only major difference is the radius of the fret board which might need some adjusting of the trem to match?!

Re: JS Neck

When you say "JS body with AANJ" I assume you have an after-market body and not an Ibanez body. Perhaps one of the Perle ones? He's built both 22 and 24 fret versions which would differ in the neck pocket. AANJ complicates things a bit so you might want to consult with the builder to be sure about the match before you purchase a neck.

With regards to a factory JS body -- the pocket is standard strat specs. I've put various necks on them, though the Korean bodies (JS600, 700, 100...) required some fine tuning to fit.

Re: JS Neck

I got a Musikraft neck with the charvel heel to put on my 540-R. It's slightly oversized, and I just had to do a little fine tuning as Stratoskier mentioned. I found using a standard strat heel was going to be a little loose/sloppy and i decided tighter was better.

Before doing that I put a 540-S wizard neck on it no problem. But the standard JS isn't AANJ to my knowledge (my JS6s aren't).
