NiteFly Neck on MaxxFly/DF Body?

Post by vjmanzo » Sun Dec 15, 2019 11:48 pm

I’m curious if anyone has tried this or simply knows if a NiteFly neck would fit in the contoured neck recess of a MaxxFly/DragonFly (or PDF) body. I don’t own a MaxxFly/DragonFly or a PDF, but, from photos, it looks like they share the same neck joint as the NiteFly.

No mod forthcoming, but I’m curious.

Seems like those guitars do have some expanded wood variety compared to NiteFlys, so a neck with the usual carbon fiber magic and stainless steel frets that retrofits those guitars could be an interesting upgrade.

I tried this, but there's a lot of mods needed. The bolt hole spacing is different, the neck pocket is a bit shallower on the DF, and the Nitefly neck has the truss rod wheel located at the bottom so the DF body needs to be routed to accompany it.
