    Ok, I'll post the obvious question:

    Why would you want to do such a thing?:jo

    I love the Gear Page! You know, it is possible out of the gazillion Fender necks made that there are a few great ones out there!

    I don't know the answer, but as someone who really enjoys modding guitars, I'd like to know the answer...

    I can't imagine anyone wanting to do this. But if you prefer the Fender neck you might consider the fit in the neck pocket at best might work, but most likely wont be an exact marriage of a tight fit in the neck pocket. if you prefer Fender necks, the perfect body for that neck would also be Fender. But if you have some cool vintage Fender Strat neck you wan't a body built for you might want to discuss it with a small custom shop luthier.
