    I'm toying with the idea of putting a Hagstrom ii neck on a Fender-style body. I'm hoping it'd be 25.5 scale length, maybe a Jazzmaster???

    I know the Hagstrom necks are 3-bolt instead of the ~usual~ 4-bolt but I'm not too worried about that. And I'm fairly confident that I can modify the neck pocket enough for it to work out. I'm mainly concerned about scale length.

    Thanks!

    The scale length is 24.75"
    Measuring from the front of the nut to the front of the 12th fret will give you half the scale length on your Hagstrom neck, it should be 12 3/8"

    The neck on my Hagstrom is smaller than a Fender in every dimension. Shorter scale length, narrower nut and heel, and way shallower so the frets might not sit high enough in your neck pocket. Come to think of it, I'm not sure the fret count is even the same.

    Thanks for the responses, that puts a damper on the idea. I had a Hagstrom a few years ago and loved the neck, but I just couldn't get the sound I wanted out of it. Maybe I'll just try and build myself a super thin neck instead...
