Quick question: Scale Length.

Recommended Posts

if you're doing a 25.5" scale neck, you're going to have to use the full 25.5" scale. the neck pickup will have to be pushed up the extra 3/4" and the bridge pushed back 3/4". dont know if you've caught onto this yet, but the neck is NOT 25.5 inches. from the nut to the 12th fret is 12.75", as it is from the 12th fret to the bridge. that's how they get the 25.5 inch scale. if you were to leave the bridge where it is, the intonation would be screwey, and it'd never play really in tune.
