I want to replace my 21-fret strat neck w/ a V-neck that happens to have 22-frets. I know that the 25&1/2" scale works w/ either; but for me to accommodate that scale length, I’d have to re-drill the bolt holes in the neck (which I can do… I’m handy w/ power tools, and I take very good care to measure PRECISELY).
However, it seems to me that a smarter move, a move which would actually line the bolt holes up better, would be to route the neck heel cavity further and re-seat this neck lower.
I do not know, however, if this will result in intonation nightmares. Hence my question about the difference between a 24&3/4" scale length versus a 25&1/2" scale length.
Does anyone know where I can read up on why and when a player should want one versus the other? And what all the considerations regarding scale length are that should be taken into account?
