    Probably been asked 1000 times, but is it possible to put a Fender Telecaster neck or Mighty Mite neck on a Squier Classic Vibe telecaster body, without too much alteration? Or are there better Squier models that a Fender neck would fit?

    Classic Vibe is the top of the line, there's no better model - and yes it will fit but no guarantee of screw holes lining up. You may have to fill the neck holes and re-drill with a drill press.....

    Is there something you don't like about the stock neck? Or did you just buy a loaded body....

    Like Ryan said, you may have to fill & drill, but it isn’t that difficult. A while back I had a Strat with an American Standard neck and VM body. It fit perfectly.

    Yes, I did the same with an MIM neck on a CV Custom body

    Direct fit, straightforward.
     
  6. Looks great … I still think they should have been offered with a maple fretboard like yours has now.
    Cheers, Barrie.
