Is it possible to throw a 24 fret neck on a crappy Ibanez Gio? It has a 22 bolt on neck right now, so what modifications would be needed? I just want to be able to have a guitar for metal lying around.
Nah, intonation would be all over the place and the scale length would be buggered around with. Save up for a new guitar.
Be hard to find a neck for a 22.5 inch scale guitar. You cant just put another scale neck on a guitar like that.
