    SX's use a different neck pocket than standard Fenders. People have done it (and by "it" I mean replace the neck), but it takes some adjustment to one part or the other. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the pocket needs to be enlarged. I really wouldn't try sanding the graphite down...

    also, may I ask why you would take a $100 bass and put a $500 neck on it? I imagine it makes it easier to clean the sick off...

    They aren't that far off..
    I put an SX neck on a Squier body and had to widen the neck pocket just a tad.
    You should get a pretty good fit. Might have to adjust the radius on the end a llittle bit.

    They have the same basic dimensions. SX neck pockets rout out a little farther on the corners but it doesn't matter. It will fit.
