Right now I'm looking at baritones, mainly for shiggles (sh!ts and giggles) and was wondering how easy it would be to take a bolt-on guitar, take the neck off, then put on a longer scale neck. It seems fairly straight forward to me, but I thought I'd get your guys' opinion on it first.

Also, I've noticed a lot of baritones have EMG's on them. Would passives sound alright?

you'd pretty much HAVE to get a conversion neck (warmoth) if you aren't building it yourself.

When the neck is in the pocket the distance from the nut to the 12th fret must equal the distance from the 12th fret to the bridge.

Otherwise, you'll have to do some serious neck pocket/ bridge placement modification.

Whats the difference between a conversion neck and a regular neck?

The conversion has a longer scale which means the lower notes sound better. Otherwise you might as well just buy a normal guitar and shove a set of heavy strings on it.

Either way you'll need to change the location of the bridge or your intonation will be horrific

I thought warmoth made a bari neck that bolts directly to a strat body that roughly compensates for intonation (within the ajustability of the saddles.)

Could be mistaken tho

You're not mistaken, that's how those ones work.

IMO Baritones sound better with low output passive [single coil] pickups than EMGs do. Ofcourse that depends on whether you're going for interesting thunder or low active fart.
