Does anyone here know if a Warmoth Gibson scale conversion neck would fit/work on a Fender Acoustasonic?
Thank you for sharing.I recently posted a thread about a low cost truss rod cover for tilt-back necks. In that post I acknowledged with much gratitude the response posted here by Stratamania. I now have a Gibson conversion neck on my Acoustasonic Player Telecaster. I use Ernie Ball Earthwood custom medium gauge (12.5-56) strings and tune the guitar to D standard. I play regularly in an acoustic duo. A few songs I transpose for D standard and for the others I use a capo, mostly at frets 1, 2 and 4. Before the Acoustasonic I played my trusty Ovation Custom Legend. I was surprised at how much better the Acoustasonic sounds plugged into a PA. The Ovation now resides in its case. Heavier gauge acoustic strings really shine on the Acoustasonic with the lowered tuning and the Gibson scale. Fender markets the Acoustasonic as a hybrid guitar. It's really an acoustic guitar that looks and feels like an electric. I love it.
I received requests in the truss rod cover thread to post photos of the details of how I fitted a Vortex tilt-back neck to the Acoustasonic. So here they are. Thanks again Stratmania. If not for your post here on the forum I'd probably still be playing the Ovation.

It was nothing really. Came in for a “sympathetic vibration”. Which turned out to be a bit of slack on the pickup mounting spring. Stretched it out to increase tension, done. Didn’t even invoice him for it, took seconds.I would love to see some of your works on that strat.
That's the reason why I believe guitarist should learn to diagnose and repair minor problems.It was nothing really. Came in for a “sympathetic vibration”.
