    I plan on putting a Mighty Mite rosewood neck on a Squire Fat Tele.

    So I took off the Squier neck ,, to check the pocket size.. I'm using the info that Stewart-Mac has on they web site,
    (I think they sell MM necks).

    http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Bodies,...:_Necks/Replacement_Neck_for_Tele_Guitar.html

    The only measurement on my pocket that is different is depth of the pocket.

    My body's pocket is 18.45mm, or 13/16,, Is this depth OK for MM neck..??

    Stewart-Mac info has 15.88mm or 5/8 ..


    Thanks for your help..

    Normal pocket depth is 5/8" (1.5875cm). 2.6mm off can be problematic, depending on the thickness of the neck.
