    So, I was thinking of putting a mim jazz neck on the squire vintage modified telecaster special.
    I was just wondering if this would fit and whether it would wreck intonation.

    The tele bass neck is medium scale (32) with the c shape. The jazz is 34 modern c.

    Thanks for any help.

    I'm pretty sure the tele uses a squared off heal on the neck, while the jazz is your standard round bottom neck. You will also have to reposition the bridge to compensate for the extra scale length, which will change the pickups position relative to the anchor point of the strings, which will change the sound of the bass.
