This is my first build, and I'm a little stuck on a part of it. The body is an ESP/LTD M-252. What neck would fit it? It doesn't necessarily have to be an ESP, but would any 24-fret neck built for a 25.5" scale work for it? Or am I missing some knowledge here?

Take measurements, or check the ESP site to see if they have schematics showing the width of the heel.

Another thing to consider along with scale length is the fretboard radius. It must match the radius of the bridge saddles. If they don't match, setup and string height continuity can be a problem. I'm not sure what type of tailpiece you have or if it's adjustable for this variable. Good luck.

I have a floyd rose.... Aren't those saddles adjustable?

If only I could afford warmoth.... haha This is mostly going to be an ebay guitar build. Poor broke fellow like myself can't shell out $350 for a neck alone.

22 fret necks won't work, you'll need a 24 fret 25.5" scale that has the heel right under the 24th fret. Check eBay, there are usually a fair number of LTD necks for sale.

That's usually not how it works. As long as the scale length is the same and the neck and body fit together, it should work.
