Oh HEAVENS NO I’d never do it to my tele. I’m just saying if need be, it isn’t exactly impossible for a bolt neck to be modified enough to work as a set neck. But practical? Not usually. Especially if all you do is plug the holes and glue it. Not to mention should the neck require a shim or is set specifically in set up with the micro tilt.The first one and the last one have plenty of depth in the neck pocket if the heel is any indication.
The next two... no telling how they were done. The one with the wooden plugs may still be bolted together, with the heads recessed and plugged. Furniture builders do it all the time.
The one that is painted, likewise, no way of knowing how that is actually attached since it's painted.
The one that is raw, I can't tell how that is done, but it may actually be a one-piece.
Just saying that YOUR Fender style guitar will be an unsuccessful glue-in conversion as it is today.
