My 22 fret jackson neck on my RR3 has a cracked headstock and I can't seem to find one with sharktooth inlays and 22 fret, they all have 24.

I was wondering if a 24 could replace a 22?

EDIT

oh and for 24 frets, make sure the scale length is the same, you have to make sure the distance between the 12th fret and the nut, and the distance between the 12th fret and the bridge are identical.

No it would never work. The intonation would be ****ed. the scale length has to be constant and obviously the 2 frets are going to extend it. As a result your open string may be E but your twelveth and twenty fourth are going to be somthing completly different.

Ebay it.

Not all 24 fret necks have a longer scale length than 22 fret necks. I have several guitars, some 24 and some 22. They all have a 25.5" scale.

^ yea...but some have different mounting points

also- some 24 necks would hit the pups-

and also- on 24 fret bodies- the bridge is usually a litle farther back i do believe- in order to keep the inotation good- but i dont know- i just know that my 24 fret body wouldnt fit a 22 fret neck- had to extend the neck 2 inches to make it work

That is a possibility. I guess it just depends on what brand neck / body combination you end up with.

This may also be a possibility. For the sake of interest, I checked a few of my guitars. I compared the following:

1. 1997 Ibanez RG270DX - Floyd Rose styled tremolo, 24 frets, 25.5" scale
2. Lag Rockline - Floyd Rose styled tremolo, 22 frets, 25.5" scale
3. Kaman GTX 23 - Strat styled tremolo, 22 frest, 25.5" scale

The point at each bridge where the strings rest on the saddles measures right about 13.5" from the top of the 12th fret on each of these guitars.

If the guitar has a neck pickup, no. You won't be able to fit the neck on as it is.

You will have to move the neck pickup closer to the bridge to be able to squeeze the extra 2 frets in there.

thomasgrant, the distance from the 12th fret to the saddles should be 12.75 inches.

fiddling with the neck is too risky if you dont know what your doing so try and find a 22 fret neck with the shark tooth inlays

Have you talked to the shop about getting a replacement neck? Or maybe, as stated before, getting it repaired?

What shop? I bought it from a friend, not a shop. Also, there are no Jackson dealers in the UK that supply parts for them

Also, yeah, I know I can get it fixed, but it will always looks cosmetically damaged and be fragile. Also, if I ever want to sell it, it will be easier with a new neck
