So the nut broke on my Strat copy and I rigged it up with the neck from my Jag-Stang, which is basically a Mustang neck. The intonation is off after the 12th, but I only spent about an hour and a half on it. Anyone else tried this?

Uh.... mustangs are a smaller scale then strats, so you will never get the intonation right no matter how much you try. The distance from the nut to the 12 fret and the 12 fret to the bridge will always be different.

Ofcourse if it's a hardtail you should be able to correct for stuff if you want to lose your bridge pickup and move the bridge forwards about 3/4".
Skeet UK is awesome, he can get WD Music parts discounted.

Were you really to cheap to spend like >$5 for a new nut?

I mean I know they are cheap, and I kinda guessed that the scales didn't quite match. I'm not that cheap, I just wanted to try it out. I guess I'll just pop in a new nut.

Until then, I get to joke about literally busting a nut and it messing up my neck.
