    After spending ALOT of time floundering in the megathread, I didn't come up with an answer to this: A fellow TBer here is offering an SX Sunburst P body, and I'm wondering if my '75 Fender fretless P neck will fit the pocket. Best I can tell, it may be 1/32" or so smaller than the pocket width-wise which is tolerable I guess. I think I'm more concerned about the pocket depth. I'd rather not have the Fender neck sit too high or too low, ya know? Any help is surely appreciated!

    It fits. I've emailed Kurt over at rondo and he claims it will fit. Also, If you read the measurements of a rondo neck compared to a fender one, there is about 1/32'' difference, the SX pocket being bigger then the Fender neck.

    It'll fit, but you'll have to do some shimming. The neck pocket is just a bit larger than the neck.
     
  4. The SX necks fit the Fender bodies, so I imagine it would work the other way around as well.
