If i bought a jaguar, and put a jazzmaster neck on it, would it intonate properly, cos i know the jaguars got a smaller scale neck. I've seen some nice jaguars, but fancy a full size neck.
Any help would be appreciated!

No, you'd have to move the bridge back to have it intonate correctly. Here's a jag overlayed on a jazzmaster with the neck pockets lined up for some reference. If you wanted to put on a Jazzmaster or Strat neck you'd have to shift it back to where the Jazz bridge is.



Here's a shot of a bloke that did it with a retrofit baritone neck.

Skeet UK is awesome, he can get WD Music parts discounted.

An option you could have, is to cut down the neck to match the scale.
Of course you'd lose frets, but you'd match the scale length, whilst keeping your jag body and jazz neck.
You'd have to sand the endges round to match the neck pocket mind, so it'd take a bti mroe work than a square cut neck pocket/neck, like I had with an old Flying Vee build.

Could always take it to a reputable luthier to do it? Mine surprisingly didn't cost that much to get done, and I knew I could trust the luthier to do a good job too.
