How are you going to deal with the round heel on the Deluxe neck vs. the flat heel of the body and pickguard?
A mate had a 70s/deluxe headstock on a 50's style body. He used to cram joints into the gap...

Do you mean the gap ?
If so, my answer is : so be it :P
I was already ok about that with the coronado neck i wanted to put in that square neck pocket in the first place, so it doesn't really matter.
But i have to confess that I didn't know tele deluxe necks were rounded heeled :blush: :whistle:
That they basically were strat necks...But as i said, it doesn't matter, as I was already prepared.
