I have ended up with a (I suppose) standard routed alder tele style body (ebay...sigh) and a MIM 21 fret Strat neck that does not seat to the right scale length due to its heel shape i.e. rounded vs tele square.

If I trim the neck back I may be getting close to the truss rod anchor. If I lengthen the neck pocket I will be into the pickup cavity.

Is there an elegant solution besides starting over?

Thanks.

Thanks for the link. Something is wonky here. Either the routing is misplaced,
(cursed ebay) or my bridge is non-standard. Any links to complete tele dimensions?

Longer screws on the bridge pieces (6, that I don't have) would correct the problem, too, I guess.

Bah! Forget about it. Sold off all the nasty bits and will order a nice Squier and customize it.
