Before I explain what I did, I will explain the 'project' I have been working on.
I decided to switch the neck and bridge from a rinky dink small student sized guitar and fashion it onto a rinky dink First Act strat wannabe.

I put the neck and body together, neck facing up. I positioned the entire thing on the edge of my counter in such a way that the body and neck dont need to be held together in order to stay together. I noticed that the neck wasn't as close as it could be to the body, so I put some cd cases under it and some weights on the body of the guitar to keep everything from slipping (I suppose) as much as possible. I screwed the neck screws in and put in a low E.

Every note sounds the way it oughtta on each fret. I did all of this in a stream of conscious way, not really understanding what or why I was doing it (aside from the screwing). Can anyone enlighten me?

I'd say that you attached the neck of one guitar to another guitar

What went on is what I should be asking. Did I counter balance something or simply bring the neck and body closer or voodoo magic?

....You fit the neck correctly in the slot then used your handy dandy adjoining utensils to forge some sort of musical device.

Are you asking why it plays in tune?
Unless the two guitars have the same scale length, I'm guessing you happened to get lucky and accidentally placed things exactly where they ought to be.

Different scale lengths are causing the dodgy notes.

um guys, this thread wasn't that confusing lol. i thought it was pretty straight forward. basically, he grabbed a random neck and was like "DUDE! I SHOULD PUT THIS ON MY FIRST ACT GUITAR!!" and so he did, thinking it would be awesome. after jerry rigging the neck to the body, he then found the notes to be out of whack because the neck was the wrong scale length.


either that or he simply has not intonated the bridge/ fixed the bow in the neck. most likely it's a combination of wrong scale length, bad intonation, and possibly a bowed neck as well, giving you absolutely crap intonation, etc.

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.

All he did, as far as I can tell, is somehow tighten the neck to the pocket, but all the stuff about the CD cases left everyone confused.
