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.
