I'm getting ready to swap parts on these two Strat mini 23" scale guitars. A few years ago I had one converted to a bass, I specifically chose it because it had the jack on top like standard Strat, but since I changed from a Sony wireless transmitter with a cable that goes to the jack, to a small Lekato pod style that is awkward in the top jack, I bought an open box Strat Mini guitar with the jack on the lower edge. I'm swapping all the parts as soon as I receive the Kala/Galli 23" flatwound nylon core I always use (yes, they work with magnetic pickups).

I received the strings yesterday but Saturday I fell riding my stand up mobility scooter and got a hairline fracture above my right ankle, so I'm off my feet for a while.

Yikes 😬 Heal quickly! 👊🏻
Thanks Jim. Went back to Kaiser for a followup and they said there is a fracture on both sides of my ankle. They gave me an air cast and said to start walking on it as much as I can tolerate in the next few days, that it will probably take 4-6 weeks to heal. So in the next couple of days, I'll try and get the conversion started.
