FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Stratocasters / Hot Rod '62 neck replacement

I am thinking of replacing my very large Hot Rod '62 neck with a smaller, hopefully Warmoth-made neck for my tiny hands. Anybody out there ever done this? If so, are the Hot Rod neck pocket/mounting holes of "standard" Fender dimensions?

I have never swapped a neck, but I understand that licensed replacement necks like Warmoths should fit.

If you're anywhere near Lansing, shoot me an email!

Looks like they probably fit everything save the exceptions listed.

Should fit, no problems, though with any neck change you may have to tweak the setup a bit.

Har, I just ordered, received and finished a Warmoth neck with very similar specs to the 62 HR. I love those necks.

Thanks, I know folks love the huge necks on these things, but I might want to go smaller. I had to have the first neck replaced under warranty by Fender when the truss rod maxed out way prematurely. The neck they built up and sent me was even bigger than the original! I just wasn't sure if the mounting hole spacing was weird like the contoured necks on the Jeff Beck, etc. Yep, I am in Lansing, Brent. Thanks for the tips, folks.

Good one, guitargeezer! People pay big money for these Hot Rod necks and mine is sorta like an old broadcaster half baseball bat. The Squier is tempting, however.

The Warmoth neck is on and plays great. And it looks just like the vintage style, just smaller and compound-radiusy!
