    Just recently noticed the Michael Kelly 1950's telecaster models and they look really nice. Does anyone know if a Fender or Warmoth neck will fit on one of their bodies?

    Probably not those are just cheap Chinese knock offs but you would have to get the specs to know for sure.

    MK is having them made in China? Interesting.... The Korean LPs are quite good (though the neck is different from Gibson).

    Just found this and thought I should chime in. Most all of the Michael Kelly Tele style electrics are made in the same Korean factory that they've been with since 1999 and is where Schecter, ESP, and PRS SE models are also made. The only exceptions are the lower end 1953 and 1954 models. All the other 50's (Tele) models are made in Korea and are great quality instruments.

    I'll throw in a vague $.02 here. I purchased a PureSalem WoodSoul recently which I know is made in Korea. Hell they could even be made in the same factory as the MKs. Anyway, I was able to swap out the neck on it with my 04 MIM strat neck with no issue at all. I was totally shocked, but there was absolutely nothing else needed to be done. I call it the Frankensoul:

    Eventually I want to get another neck for it and put the existing neck back on my strat body. But until then, it plays and sounds phenomenal! It's got sustain for days.
