    and Hendrix.

    I've fitted various 'strat' style necks to various non-Fender bodies and they seem to all fit O.K.

    Yeah I probably could have lived with the colour. (i.e. Wilko Johnson Tele)

    Mine have been sanded to a radius of 7.25" which sounds quite severe yet in reality isn't that much.

    Given that 24" necks don't appear in the Pitbull 'Necks' page, I guess a replacement would have to come from another kit.
