AANJ conversion on UV neck - has anyone tried it? Is it hard
Another step towards starting up my little project (a description of it is floating around somewhere on the forum) is deciding wether I want to stick with the standard bolt on neck or go with an AANJ. It is sort of a step I have to decide on now rather than later so I can start planning everything out properly...
The problem I have is that I have an old-style bolt on universe neck that is to be used for this project (of a UV7BK), so If i am to get an AANJ body, then I am going to need to do a neck conversion on it (or have it done by someone else).
So is this hard to do? What are the problems associated with doing it? Has anyone done it/attempted to do it? Has anyone done it on a UV neck? If the conversion is done, how can you tell it matches a AANJ (The reason I am asking this is because I want to order a body from custom guitar wares, but don't really want to ship the neck there and back (customs and all that, and expense, and risk of losing it))?
And finally...if I decide it's too risky for me to do (I would prefer not to screw it up...) is there anyone out there who feels comfortable/confident enough to do it? (Of course for some form of reimbursement for effort (also known as money))
