    Default 24 Fret to 22 Fret??

    I've got a quick question for the master guitar builders here...

    Today, I bought an old Jackson 24 fret guitar (really cheap) and the neck has had a backyard 12th to 24th fret scallop job done to it and its pretty badly done. I'd like to replace the neck with a Charvel Strat type neck, but with 22 frets.

    My question is, can it be done? Will it screw up the intonation? Is there anything I need to know before I buy one...

    I've always liked this look ala Phil Collen, so I'd like to do the Strat look, but if it wont work, I can always buy a cheap Jackson neck from ebay.

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated....

    What are the measurements from the beginning of the nut? Then to the end of the neck on both.
