I recently did a conversion conversion project. That's a tele that started life as a regular Mexican, but then got converted a piece at a time, and where the new neck was a conversion neck (Gibson scale). I had a few hiccups along the way, and thought I would capture them here, for others who could be doing the same. And maybe others can share their experience too. My experience, YMMV, as they say. STARTED WITH:99/2000 Mim tele, all stock CURRENTLY: Mim body and small hardware Locking fender vintage/modern tuners Warmoth roasted maple neck, stainless jumbos, C contour, modern construction, conical radius, tusq nut, dry. Dimarzio true velvets. Electro socket .01 orange drop cap, 250k pots Future: possibly a white body, mmmmaybe go back to area hot T in bridge. SURPRISES/Things to know. --You may need longer saddle screws, I did. --If your guitar is older, you may also need new saddle tension screws because you will have to let your intonation out some, and your screws get compressed over time. -I had a very minimal "non-tele" changes in tone. For me, it was well worth it, because I like shorter scales much better. I think most people could not spot it in a recording, unless it was A/B'd, with all else the same. --If switching out other stuff along with the neck (I was messing with pickups and tone cap), buy a bunch of e and b strings, my locking tuners and the bridge popped 2 or 3 throughout the process. --Frets and nut will probably not be perfect, even on a good neck (I love Warmoth, but nut slots were high). --In general, I like the truss rod side adjust on Warmoth modern necks, but find so far that the heel adjust seems to be a coarse adjust, and needs to be set pretty close to correct, or you'll have trouble doing it with the side adjust alone? --Lastly, would I do it again? Absolutely. Are things perfect? Not yet, but I'm not done fine tuning.
