Warmoth neck + JS body

Hi guys,
I've got a Warmoth 22 fret strat heel neck, I remember reading somewhere that Ibanez 22 fret square heel bodies will accept Warmoth necks prefectly. I'm wondering if anyone has tried and can confirm/deny this. Thinking of ordering a square heel JS body from Perle guitars or something like that Please let me know if you've tried this before!
Thanks!

Warmoth necks come a lot of different ways, that would be a shot in the dark without measuring both neck and body.

Really? It's a standard strat neck. As far as I know, they (Warmoth) only makes 2 types of heels: strats and teles, and they're all designed to fit on a 25.5" scale standard strat pocket. Currently fits fine in a cheapo standard strat body but I want something nicer for it.

Yes, the Warmoth strat heel should fit. But be aware that even high quality factory or after-market necks can vary a bit in the final dimension -- nothing that a little light sanding on the neck, body or both can't fix. I'm not sure if you're the same person that posted recently about this, but be sure you don't get an AANJ body from Perle if you want the neck to be a drop in replacement.

Every stat sheet I can find has the JS neck pockets at 56mm. Strat necks are 55.55mm (2 3/16"). Any idea as to how to keep this gap down?

0.45mm is too much clearance? That's about 2/10mm on each side. If you really couldn't live with that, a couple of light coats of lacquer, shellac or similar would take care of it.
