Will a Blazer neck work on a Roadstar 335?

Hey guys longtime Vintage Ibanez owner first time poster.
I have a pair of 1983 Roadstar's 335's One of the neck's the top 4 frets are shot.
My friend has a 81/82 Blazer neck. Should it fit?

Thanks!

sorry, but weekdays can be kinda slow. it's tough to say, the easiest way to tell is to ask him to take measurements, and then take some of your own.

also make sure they have the same scale lengths and fret number. (Fret number only matters if the neck has more frets than originally came on the guitar)

Hi Ron...Welcome to Jemsite!!

You should not have any problems AFAIK. I think all of IBBY's neck/heel joints were standardized in that time period. In doing a little research I found that all of the Blazers in 81-82 and the RS's in 83 had a 25 1/2" scale and 22 frets. You should be good to go!!!

Careful on the 22-fret Blazer necks (if that's what this one is) -- on some of them, the heel extends all the way to the very end of the fretboard, rather than having a fretboard overhang for the 22nd fret. That is a very peculiar heel style, and the only way to make it fit into a regular strat pocket, which most RS's did indeed have, would be to shave wood off of the neck to reform it into a traditional heel.

I know about this because I had to do it...

Cheers,
Bert
