i've got a double neck (guitar/bass). the necks are frettless, and i want to get a fretted guitar neck. the current neck is a 24 fret size, but all the necks on warmoth are 22 fret necks. all my other guitars are 22 fretters, so i really don't know what to do with those extra 2 frets. can i put a 22 fret neck on this guitar?

i can post pics if you guys need them.

if you want to replace it with a 22 fret neck the scale length will probably be off so your going to have to move the bridge yadda yadda yadda.
Or you can buy a 24 fret neck. There are more shops than just warmoth.

etc etc

you can put a 22 fret neck on your guitar, as long as the distance between the nut and the 12th fret on both necks is exactly the same

If the neck is a 24 fret neck versus one with the extra frets overhanging the end. Then your gonna have to go with a 24 fret.

it's a 24 fret neck. and it's 25.5 inches from just after the nut to where the string hits the bridge. but would i be able to buy a 22 fret neck that is a 25.5 scale length and not have to relocate my bridge? i just can't find a 24 fret 25.5 inch scale neck.

Does the fingerboard hang over the heal of the neck? Some necks are made longer because of the 24 frets and some are made the same and the last 2 frets have no neck under it. If it's just hanging over than a 22 fret neck is fine. How are you sure the heal would fit though?

no it doesn't. the actual neck is made longer because of the frets. but it has the 25-1/4 inch scale. if they're the same scale, why wouldn't a 22 fret neck work?

i'm pretty sure the heel will fit.

The neck was made longer and the bridge is closer to the neck because of that. If you put a 22 fret neck on it the bridge would be too close. 25 1/4 scale length? Warmoth only makes 25 1/2'' and 24 3/4" conversion necks so that won't work and I'm not even sure you can buy 25 1/4" necks without having it custom made.

wow, sorry it's a 25-1/2 inch scale. can i use a 22 fret neck?

No, your still going to have to find a 24 fret neck.

The scale length determines the the over all distance from nut to saddle and the distance of the frets. Yes a 24 fret 25.5 neck is the same from nut to saddle as a 22 fret. But the 24 fret neck is 2 frets longer or about 3/4 of an inch. The bridge pickup is moved closer to the bridge and the neck pocket is deeper. A 22 fret neck would be to short in the 24 fret neck pocket so the scale would be off. Warmoth is all about fender neck specs so wont work same with places like mightymite. You might have to have one made for the guitar as it probably wont have the same specs as say a fender or ibanez.
