So an on-line parts seller had this Elite Stratocaster neck on special. I really have come to love my Elite Strat and Tele, so I decided that it might be worth getting this neck and a set of locking tuners. My initial plan for this would be to build a body. I think I'd like to do a hardtail, and I don't think that Fender, or anyone else for that matter, offers a hardtail body with the curved neck heel and notched neck pocket. So that leaves just doing a custom body build. I suppose if an Elite Strat or Tele body came up at some sort of great deal, I might change my mind. Two other alternatives are also possible. I could do a neck swap with this custom hardtail build I did a while ago: I'd just have to notch out the truss rod adjustment area. The Elite neck also features a contoured neck heel, so I'd have to decide If I wanted to make that adjustment as well. Or I could do a neck swap with this Strat: Again, I'd have to notch out the area for the truss rood adjust. I also just installed a Fishman Powerbridge on this one. If I did this one, I could put this neck on the hardtail, which currently has an MIM neck. Again, I'd have to decide if I wanted to contour the neck heel. I'm tending toward a new body build, with the hardtail mod in 2nd place. Not sure when I'd start this project, regardless of which way I go.
