    Does anyone know if the moses(MJ-144) fender replacement neck will fit on a USA jazz deluxe body?

    I doubt it--the Moses neck is designed to fit on a regular 20-fret Jazz body, and the US Deluxe has a 22-fret body. The Moses neck would be too short by the length of 2 frets.

    Mike is correct. I believe the Moses necks have 22 frets but they are made so that the fingerboard extends back over the neck pocket. They are fine necks. I have two of them. Had to have basses with my name on the headstock!

    Thanks for the input guys. You saved me from an almost impulse buy.
