Once I found out that those guitars have 24.75" scale necks, it got me thinking... I've been pricing 'conversion necks' recently for an upcoming Tele project (I love me some Teles, but I also prefer 'Gibson scale'), and the lowest quote I've gotten so far is $175. Granted, it'll be hand-crafted by a luthier in New York, and will probably be of excellent quality, but this is an experiment... Or a prototype, if you will. I want to find out if I like the feel and sound of a 24.75" scale Tele (or Strat) before I start buying up expensive parts. Since a Gypsy Rose Strat only costs $109, I thought it wouldn't be that crazy to buy the whole guitar just for the neck. I could strip it and refinish it, and level and dress the frets if need be. My only concern is, I have no idea if the neck heel is of standard Fender dimensions. So I emailed the "answer man"... He didn't know. And he said he didn't want to unstring one and take the neck off to measure it. I could hardly blame him (and said so), and told him I'd just ask around the forum and see if I could find anyone who owned one. So, does anybody own one? If so, do you know what the neck heel width is? Thanks in advance!
