you guys are always a fountain of information and good advice. I need a neck for a loaded strat body i just bought on ebay. i have been stratless for a couple of years now and pulled the trigger on a loaded body for 550. I have a fully jerrified ibanez musician and it is spot on for jerry, but i am finding i like my tele better for my band that plays a handful of dead tunes, and then other rock, country, electrified hippie grass type stuff. I still want to make this strat a total jerrycaster, but also want it to be fairly versatile for other stuff too. Any ideas on necks for Jerry tone? Maple vs Rosewood? after market (warmoth, mighty mite, musikraft) vs fender. If fender, USA vs Mex vs Japan? I'm trying to do this on a budget, but seems like a neck is something you don't want to skimp on. Here are the specs:
