    I have a mitey mite neck that was on an SX bass.
    Anyone know if the holes (on the neck) will line up with a fender body.

    Thanks.
     
  2. In theory, they are the same. In practice, you should check first before making a commitment to anything.
     
  3. What Hambone said! I just went through this when I bought a used neck for my P-clone. If the holes don't line up, it is a very simple chore to plug the old holes with dowels and glue and then redrill correctly positioned holes after the glue dries...total time about a half hour or so.
