southpaw rocker Posted May 2, 2008 Report Share Posted May 2, 2008 I have to start from the beginning. About nine months ago I bought a guitar body off of ebay. I'm pretty sure the description was right. It said it was a Schecter Omen TOM/string thru made of Basswood. I threw an EMG 81/85 combo in there and stuck my favorite Squier bolt-on neck on it. I thought it sounded awesome but needed to be tuned. Lo and behold after 15 minutes of double and triple checking my tuning it still sounded out of tune. I finally figured out that the scale wasn't right. I've checked specs and the Omen is (at least now it is) a 25.5'' scale. I'm pretty sure (although I'm not sure why) that this guitar body is suppose to have a 24.75'' scale neck. The other thought I had was a question. Is there a difference between a 22 fret 25.5 and a 24 fret 25.5''(because the fender neck is 22 frets and the original neck was 24)? can someone point me in the right direction?
