Can you replace the neck of a Deluxe tele with a standard neck?

    I have a Deluxe Tele that I'm hoping to replace the next on it with the Deep C neck that typically comes with the American Professional telecaster.

    Is that easily doable? The Deluxe has a contoured neck heel, so it's not the usually rectangular heel. I assume drilling an additional hole shouldn't be a big deal, but will the neck fit correctly into the heel pocket?

    Have any of you tried doing this?

    Thanks.

    Aren’t Deluxes supposed to have a Strat shaped neck? If so, that’s a Strat replacement neck you should get.
