80s Necks and Bodies matching

As I often see saber necks for sell, I was just wondering if a squared heel 22 frets Saber Wizard neck could match a 22 frets squared heel 540P body.

as far as im aware they will do - if it doesnt say in the advert for the item, you may need to check the scale lengths of the body and neck, but if its a 22 fret neck, and a 22fret body, it'll match up!

Yes, but those have the same neck profile, unless you just want to add sharkfins to a 540P. I think what you might be more interested in is putting a Saber neck on a 540R.

Re: 80s Necks and Bodies matching

In fact, I'd like to order a custom Perle square heel 540P (the reverse version) body. But I can't find any ibanez neck replacement (although I've been told Perle also sells Ibanez replacement necks - but I can't find any information about it on his website), and I like the feel of the 80s-90s ones. I'm not sure this is the best options as I'm just starting thinking of it.

I believe those Perle bodies are based around 24 fret necks. Personally, I don't trust them at all. They look really wrong compared to the 22 fret 540P I have.

Save up and buy a real one. Seriously.

You'll have to email Perle if you want something. I've had a ProLine V body and a cocobolo 24 fret neck made by him. They are both really nice

I don't think he makes 22 fret necks, though..
