Is it easy to say change the neck on a fender stratocaster 70s reissue?

I'm thinking about buying the one i wanted off ebay but since it didn't have maple fretboard like i wanted i was going to change the rosewood to fretboard. Is there any website that you can buy strat necks for specific strat models? And how easy would it be to do?

If you changed the neck i would take it to a luther. It will need setting up properly. Lots of truss rod adjustments along with setting the bridge for the sring gauge you use. To get the best out of your guitar get the proffesionals in!
I messed with my old les paul before i knew much about guitars and some of the notes wouldnt sound when fretted up past the 12th fret.
the strings need (i believe) to follow the radius (curviture) of your neck. some necks are different to others.
