Necks on the James T. Variax
by addvantage on 2011-01-23 06:51:10

Any chance of special ordering a JTV-69 Variax with a JTV-89 Variax neck? The JTV-69 neck is too big & fat for my taste!

The JTV models are sold as complete guitars. We don't offer individual neck sales, sorry.

Fair enough! So if I buy the JTV-89 and the JTV-69 can I switch necks, are they compatible?

Wouldn't you be better off buying the JTV69 and replacing the neck with whatever you want, perhaps relying on a local luthier to make sure it fits properly?

Even though both guitars have 25.5" scale lengths the 89 has 24 frets while the 69 has 22, even if the 89 neck would fit the 69 pocket I doubt that you'd ever get the intonation right without more extensive modificaions.
