This is probably gonna seem like a noob question to you guys but hey il never know till i ask.

I've just got myself a Sharkfin shaped guitar from ebay, was covered in dents n scratches so i sanded it down and i'm gonna re-do the finish then hopefully buy the rest of the parts over time.

my question is... how do i know what type/size/scal neck i should put on it? i mean i'd rather have 24 frets but how do i know if it would take 24 rather than only 21 or 22?

yeah i understand all that but is there anyway for me to tell if my body is suitable for 24 frets or not?

Nope. If the body is already drilled for the bridge, you either have to get lucky and guess the right scale, or dowel the holes, and redrill for the bridge.

Measure from the bridge to the frontmost edge of the neck socket. If this measurement is more than 12.75", you're going to have difficulty putting a standard 24 fret neck in there without re-routing the pocket, as the majority of them are built to a 25.5" scale and the fretboard tends not to overhang the end of the neck.
