    Silly question perhaps, but I am wondering

    Can a standard 5 string (22 fret?) J neck fit on a four string body?

    I guess the main issue is the neck pocket... is it wider for a five - I would guess so

    Like you said, it depends on the neck pocket. In most cases...no.

    A standard vintage Fender neck pocket is 2 1/2" wide. A 5er neck is usually wider than that, unless it's a super narrow 5er.
