24 fret neck for a Dean ML??

I currently have 2 Dean MLs, both with the standard 22 fret neck. I'd like to swap one out with a 24 fret neck(that doesn't have a locking nut for floyd rose), but I'm unsure as of where(ebay, warmoth etc.) or which necks specifically will fit my baby and give me the extra frets and thinner neck I so desire. So please Disciples of Dime, any advice would be greatly appreciated!

You can't just swap out the neck, it's not that simple. You'd almost certainly have to change the routing in the neck joint, and then there'll be some nightmare with the intonation.

Long story short, for the hassle and the cost you may as well buy a new guitar.

well assuming you cuould find the correct neck that fits the joint and is the correct scale
it should be just a straight swap out

having said that good luck on finding a neck that fits the joint and is the correct scale

i think tis be less work and probably money to buy a new guitar with 24 fret
a youtube link?
maybe you should click on it

Also, if your guitar has a neck pickup (assuming it does), there might not be enough space for the two extra frets to begin with. With a 25.5" scale the two extra frets add about an inch in fretboard length, and if the neck pickup is already touching your current neck you'll have to either remove it or reposition it.....
