Hello, i want to ask about, replacing a guitar neck.
Will Left-Haned guitar neck fit in a right-handed guitar?
Its like reverse neck,

If you're using a neck of the same model then chances are yes. You'll most likely need a new nut though.

And you wont have side dots marking fret positions. Not a problem if you dont use them.

Or just pull the other one off the right handed neck if you can, if it's the same model as stated, it should fit with little to no issue.

Some neck pockets have an asymmetrical bolt pattern so you might not be able to simply bolt on a reversed neck. Its not a problem, you just drill new holes in the neck. The neck holes dont go all the way through so the old ones probably wont even be visible.

I'd suggest filling the holes before drilling new ones, if you have to do it, otherwise, you might not get a good grip if the holes are too close or just slightly off center.

In any case, if the neck is new, just remember to measure twice and drill once, just in case.
