Switching JS necks

Is it possible to put a JS1000 neck onto the body of a JS100? I thought that I had heard it done before, but when I tried it, the neck joints where incompatible, the JS100 being to big for the 1000 neck, and the JS1000 being to small for the 100 neck. The JS100 was a '95 and the other was a JS2000. I know the radius has changed over the years, at least on the JS100's; are JS's made in similar time frames more compatible??

By all means I would have thought that they would fit.

NO....from my experimentation they are different in the heel area.
The 100, 600 and even the 700 body has a 'bigger'(wider) pocket than a 1000 or even a js1 neck needs.
weird I know but I speak from actual hands on knowledge.

You can put a 1000 or a high end neck on a Korean made body i.e. 100,600 or 700 BUT it 'wiggle' or have slop or whatever you want to call it....because the pocket is a little wider than the heel of the 1000 neck.

I used mahogany 'shims' on eithe side of the neck on the 700 i'm putting together. The shims were sanded town to about the thickness of a business card. NOW it's locked in place dead center of the pocket with NO PLAY.

The neck pocket on my JS 1 bodies and JS1000 are the same dimensions.
They are al slightly narrower than the 700 neck pocket.

Jim
