    Will any SX neck fit on any SX bass? I'm looking at slapping an SX Bass Neck SJB-75 with Pearloid Block Inlays on either an SPB-62 or an SPJ-62.
  2. Check the neck pocket dimensions. Other than that, it should drop in quite nicely.

    I can tell you from experience that a SX shortscale jazz neck DOES NOT fit a SX shortscale P body. The jazz neck is almost a cm larger than the neck pocket on the P.

    Why Don't SX necks fit Standard Fender Jazz Basses? (sorry for the thread hijack...)

    SX necks are bigger. Remember they are two seperate companies. Nothing compels sx to build to Fender specs. In fact, sx would no doubt prefer if you put your sx neck on an sx body (ie buy the whole dang sx bass!)

    Speaking from experience...I recently went the other way around. Putting a SX P neck into my SX jazz body...fit was just about perfect. Only thing is that the holes don't line up, so you may have to fill and drill some new holes. Other than that, a little shim here...a little adjustment there...and it is playing and feeling GREAT.

    Good luck.
  7. I've been through a few neck swaps.

    First, I put a fretless maple/block jazz neck on a SX jazz. Fit perfect.

    Second, I put a fretted maple/block jazz neck on a Squier PBass. Fit perfect.

    Third, I'm putting a fretted maple/block neck on another SX Jazz and it fits perfect....not mounted yet though.

    I had asked Kurt this and his response was that the 75 Jazz with inlays WILL fit the SPJ62.

    Was looking to add the Black block to one of my SPJ's.
    Right now, he only has the frettless, but the fretted will be back in stock
    in spring as he said in another email.

    Hope this helps
  10. I tried the Blocked Jazz neck on my SPB62 3TS and it fit perfect. Wished I still had that body... :crying:
