Would a neck from a '97 MIA Jazz Deluxe fit a new Flea model?

    Just trying to confirm before I buy a loaded body from one of these new Flea models.

    No. Those bases had 21 or 22 frets if I re call. The flea is based on a 61 jazz which only has the standard 20 frets.

    In other words, even if the neck "fits" you would have to move the bridge in order for the base to maintain its 34 inch scale and intonate properly.
