    So quick question.
    I searched and didn’t quite find what I was looking for.
    I just picked up a new American pro tele in natural and I’m wondering if I can use a Baja neck on it.
    And if if so is it a drop in replacement
    Thanks!

    Should be fine. As with all things wood, it might require sanding.

    Greetings....no problem at all! I've built several "partscasters" with American Pro bodies. One with a 50's Baja neck...one with a Brad Paisley Tele neck....and the last one with a Robert Cray Stratocaster neck. (Because the Strat neck has a slight curved radius at the bottom of the neck, there is a very slight gap....doesn't bother me!)

    Fantastic!
    The Baja neck is my favorite neck so I will pull the trigger on one then.
    Thanks

    Yep I’ve put a Baja 50s neck on an AVRI body on a project and it is perfection
