you will probably have to modify the pocket, and maybe reposition the neck pickup.

lol i got confused by that post a little bit, what with the odd way of quoting me, but anyway, no the scale would be the same, but you would have a different placement of the neck in the pocket, and more frets

well the neck i have isnt drilled out at all and i might have been confusing im replacing a 24 fret with a 22 fret same scale is there any problem? i really appreciate the help i thought i was going to have a heart attack there for a while
#6
Oh, you're replacing 24 with 22, I had it backwards, does your guitar have a pickguard, If it does you may not have to alter, but if its straight wood, You'll need to fill the pocket a little bit unless you want a gaping hole there.

no i dont have a pickguard now im kind of confused so the scale will be off if i dont compensate by putting a filler between the neck and the body and if i do that will the neck pocket be big enough for the intgrity

I honestly haven't ever tried a conversion to fewer frets, so I wouldn't know, sorry man

yes, there are more frets on the 24 fret, so the neck=overhang will be longer, but the scale length is still exactly the same

thats what i was thinking to but then i started thinking maybe they moved the floyd rose on the body for the scale would they do something like that?
#12
naw man, the scale has to remain the same or the intonation will be all screwy

now if ithe 24 fret and the 22 fret necks are the same length but the 24 has longer fingerboard itll work but if the 24 fret neck is longer and no over hang would they move the floyd back to make up the difference?
#14
Ahh, those words just all jumbled up in my head!

*re-reads*

Yes, to keep the scale length the same, nut to 12 must equal 12 to bridge

If the neck and body are the same scale length, the only problems you will run into are where to mount it (to keep the correct scale length) and the fact you might have some gaps.

EDIT: He means the 12th fret. The distance from the nut to the 12th fret must equal the distance from the saddles to the 12th fret.

ok i understand that what i mean is how big does the neck pocket have to be to mount a neck
#22
if it fits the neck plate, i think you should be good.
