Gotta look around, tho.
A compact bridge, relocated 35mm to the rear would work, if there is ample "real estate"....And that is the big "IF". What matters is where the saddles will end up in relation to the nut, establishing the scale of the instrument. On a 35 inch scale bass the G string saddle will sit @ 35.125 inches (892mm)from the nut when properly intonated.
It sound like Camaro's replacement neck, although the same scale, but with fewer frets, came from a bass with a longer body design which allowed the neck pocket to sit further forward from the bridge(compensating for not being a 24 fret neck)
Just my thoughts......Pictures would help.
