    Just a few months ago I put an SX neck on an old Squire J body with no issues whatsoever. You're doing the exact opposite but I would imagine it should work just fine. One thing to check to be sure is to fit the neck in the body and measure from the 12th fret to bridge and make sure it is the same distance as the 12th fret to the nut (should be about 17" for a full scale). If I remember correctly the SX neck heel was more square than the Squire's neck pocket, the opposite (which is what you have) could be a problem for you.
