    Default stupid neck related question

    i'm thinking of changing the neck on the mongrel strat/evh tribute guitar i built last year, but i've just been looking at the washburn website drooling all over the n4. so i want to fit a reverse style fender neck....can i just fit a left hander? (obviously swapping the nut round)


    oh and on a different guitar i'm gonna change the floyd for a newer one so another stupid questio...are all floyds the same measurements (i.e. are the mounting posts the same distance apart?) or do i have to find the specific replacement for my old kramer barretta (its an 84)

    cheers guys

    If your "Mongrel" strat body has a standard Strat style neck pocket (2-3/16) and the body and neck are of the same scale (which is commonly 25.5 for strats), then yeah ... it should work.

    Some licensed Floyds have different spacings.
    Measure and make sure it'll work before buying anything.

    yeah the neck is all original strat and 25.5", so im chuffed i can fit the neck i've seen....its oil finished too which will be nice (not having to sand a neck before i fit it), i'll order it tonight and when it arrives and i've fitted it/set up i'll post some pics

    i'll measure the floyd and see if i can order an exact replacement

    thanks dino

    If it's a used neck, don't forget to dowel the holes and properly align it.
