    Has anyone ever put a Tele thinline deluxe neck on a Tele Deluxe body? I know they are both 3 bolt-on neck but can you just interchange them without any modifications to the neck or body?

    Should be interchangeable. I've swapped a few 3bolts. The QA in the 70's was not perfect so you may have some fitment issues but probably not. Warmouth even makes a 3 bolt mounting option. I got one for my 74 Thinline as the original was too thin.

    I have a 72 Deluxe RI so I would figure QA would be better switching a Thinline RI neck to a Deluxe RI body. Has anyone tried this on the RI's?
