    My buddy that bought my Geddy neck popped it in a Warmoth body with no problems... And my American P neck fit perfectly in the Geddy body... so I'd have to say yes. :)

    Actually I'm Bill's buddy, lol - the luthier did have to do a little extra routing in the corners of the neck pocket to make it flush, it was an extremely tight fit (i.e. you'd have had to force it in and neither of us wanted to, part of this was due to the overlap of the finish from Warmoth and part of it was due to the the actual slight difference in shape between the neck and pocket - he reshaped the pocket and took the finish down on the neck to make the two flush. I'd say, based on my experience, you won't be able to put the Geddy neck on an MIA body without some modification to either the neck or body...
