Warmoth Tele neck on a Dirnt body?
I already have the Warmoth Tele neck (it's in a Jazz width which I like) and have the opportunity to buy a Dirnt '51 body. Will that work?? The Warmoth neck heel is rounded but is that such a big deal when it comes to functionality and sound? Any other issues I might not know about?
I don't know heel specs, but Warmoth's (famous friends of mine use'em) usually fit...
A round heel will fit into a square cavity but a square heel will not fit into a round.
Yes, it'll work. If your Warmoth neck has the extra fret over-hang, it'll hide the square gaps around the pickguard. Good luck!
Yes, the neck has the overhang to cover the voids. Wallace, I'm trying to acquire one of the Dirnt bodies that's not a cheapie....I think (not sure) the better ones are made in Mexico? Thanks for your input.
Tony, MIM are ash Fender Precisions, what former Precision bodies "should be" made of
Squier sometimes make a few distinctive models as well, but this is not the case with Dirnt's replicas
Those are black/white finished agathis bodies that are nothing like Fender's black/vintage white/sunburst ash bodies
The thing you obtain with a Warmoth neck on it is a Jazz nut, if you dig so, and a sure better overall quality piece. Original MIM necks were not always "perfect"
I had a vintage white one I still miss that souded huge, thanx to ash body, BadAssII bridge and Custom '59 split pickup, yet its neck was not on par with other bass highlights.
So please choose between those three finishings on ash body and beware black/white agathis Squier Dirnt's body;)
