Exactly. The new neck most of the times will feel and play different, not only because it’s new. The fit won’t be quite the same. This is especially true if the guitar was assembled and adjusted by hand like I said.

JM’s strat had a replica neck made by the same master luthier, with the “same” wear and tear, and the owner hated it.
