I want to buy this new after-market Jackson neck to install on my freshly modded Stratocaster.

The thing is, the nut space for the Jackson neck is 1 11/16" inches, and I don't have a Floyd Rose Tremolo (nor do I plan on spending THAT much for a bridge yet), so what should I do? Should I just buy the Floyd Rose Locking nut and install it? Are there any other options other that buy a whole Floyd Rose Bridge setup?

Thanks,
Joe

its like under $100 for a liscensed FR. Just use that to fill the blank untill you get a OFR bridge.

So, just install the FR nut, even though I have a regular stock Fender bridge? How would that react with my guitar. My guitar springs are configured so that I have no pickup, but I can divebomb like crazy.

You could possibly install the FR nut and leave it unlocked.

Try and find a Jackson neck that isn't built around the floyd rose?


I totally can't find one. That neck I showed you is from an eBay Store (Wildberry Castle) and all those Jackson necks are set for FR. They're also only $99, so I can afford that.


If you can show me a place online or in Tampa (my zip code is 33511) that sells necks that aren't just for Floyd Rose, I'd be really grateful.

I want to buy a Jackson Neck and a locking FR nut.

The thing is, the nut says it has offset mounting holes, and I don't know if it'll fit or not. Do you think it will? It looks as though if I turn it upside down it would fit. Should I?


Thanks,
Joe
