    Default Has anyone here added an EVH Striped Series neck to another body?

    I want to grab one for my homemade Bumble Bee, but don't know how much of a job it will be to fit it because of the truss wheel at the bottom. Anyone try this?

    The neck heel actually extends to surround the truss wheel, so you'd have to lengthen the neck pocket a bit. I believe they're also a bit thinner at the heel than standard Strat necks.

    What would be the best way to lengthen the pocket? Use a Dremel Tool? And would I have to make it a perfect 25.5" distance between the nut and bridge?

    I bought it today. It already has the neck joint holes drilled, so I'll have to make that line up with the body perfectly and that might be a challenge.

    The extended heel will make it not intonate correctly in a normal Strat or Tele neck pocket. The neck pocket needs to be extended with a router.

    Yes, I figure the neck pocket will need some work. Will probably have my tech do it.

    Also, I'm pretty sure the heel is a touch wider than a strat heel.
