I'm thinking about building my own SG and i really love the feel of a good fender neck ( even over my Gibson SG neck ). So if i wanted to have a Gibson SG body and slap a Fender neck on it or would i have to build my own body so that the neck would fit properly.

Well the neck is not a bolt on on the SG, so I dont know how you would do that

If you want a fender neck on a SG only way I know of is a warmoth. As a bolt neck fender is never going to fit in a set neck SG body. With the warmoth you could get a fender shape neck and scale but still have the SG headstock so it didnt look out of place.

just build one... that way you could spec it out exactly how you want...

or go warmoth... either way it'll cost you about the same for the first one... after that, the rest are a lot cheaper to build yourself.

Fender SGocaster.

Sounds perfectly possible if you build a body for it.

just get yourself a copy gauge so you can make templates of how you want the neck shaped at the nut, fret 5, 9, 12, 15 and the heel... or any in between. then take a caliper, measure the thickness of each area and shape down to those dimensions with each position matching the template. Personally, I just go by what feels comfy in my hand
