Re: Strat Body/JS Neck

Also... Im told the neck will fit with minimal mods... but do you foresee any intonation problems etc.... isnt a strat neck 21 frets and a JS is 22? or does that make no difference?..... any help appreciated.....

Re: Strat Body/JS Neck

From what I've been told, it should retrofit with no problems but I would check to make sure the holes align properly.

I think it would be a cool hybrid IMO and you should definitely do it

P.S.: Post pictures of the operation...

Re: Strat Body/JS Neck

Well the thing is, I want something that looks like a strat, not a JS.... But... I just dont like Fender necks, so seems logical that I could put a JS neck onto a strat body and have the best of both worlds, so 1) im after the strat tone without the strat neck 2 I want it to look like a strat body-wise and 3) It would be different, and a talking point with other guitarists when I meet them... I know it might seem a bit nuts to some of you.... But i find the idea of marrying the 2 brands today kinda cool.....

Cheers.... I will post pics if I go ahead with it..... I think it could come out quite cool.... i know its likely next year there could be a 3 Single coil JS coming out, but.... It will still look like a JS.... i really want the body to be a strat body, so its something a little different....

Re: Strat Body/JS Neck

Well not a bad idea, i was just curious
May be you should consider making a custom body to fit exactly with the neck.

Re: Strat Body/JS Neck

Or just get a Wizard spec Strat neck from Warmoth or the thin D spec neck from Musikraft.
