So I've been lusting after a Yngwie strat or a strat with a scalloped fretboard for quite some time. The thing is, i don't really like the colors they have available. Plus the price of the yjm is so expensive here. Would it be possible to buy YJM strat neck and put it onto a 70s style fender body?

Every time a YJM strat comes up for a good price over here it sells almost immediately. But sometimes YJM strats stay up for sale for years....they only seem to sell out whenever i develop an interest in them. I swear there's a secret network of dickheads that conspires to buy guitars split seconds before i can.

Pretty sure you can swap that neck on to any Strat body you like. You could even put it on a Jazzmaster if you wanted.

A licensed "YM" Mighty Mite neck popped up this week over here for ₩200k: LINK.

But yeah, Pee-Bay would seem to be the source for variety: http://www.ebay.com/bhp/scalloped-neck

Buy a cheap squier strat neck and scallop yourself? Might be a fun/disastrous project.

There are a few Fender "part out" sellers on eBay USA. I'm sure scalloped necks come up now and then. Do a saved search and wait.
