Idol body with Les Paul neck?
« on: December 16, 2010, 10:31:57 AM »
Hi there!

i´m thinking about buying an Idol body from ebay, i think g.man music is the dealers name, for building my own Idol. I have a very good quality LP neck leftover, with long tenon, so now i wonder if it would fit into the body, nut so much because of the neck pocket width but because of the buzz feiten system, i´m not sure if the scale length would be correct in relation to the position of the bridge.
Maybe someone has any info/experience with this?

Kind regards, Sebastian

the feiten system simply places the nut closer to the first fret, nothing else is changed in the guitar body.
so if any problem would arise by installing a Les Paul neck on an Idol, it wont have anything to do with
the feiten system.
