In an effort to repair a $40 bass for my friend (which has been covered in a previous topic, "A Bit Of A Problem..."), I purchased a really nice neck. Unfortunately, the neck does not fit the pocket, and I cannot use it for that bass. No problem; it's a really good neck, and I want to use it on a great body that I'm building myself. What I want to do, though, is make a short-scale bass (32" scale, to be exact). This neck is a replacement for a standard, 34" scale Jazz Bass, which is quite obviously not 32". Now that I have bogged you down in excessive detail (which, from my experiences here at TalkBass, is a good thing), I will ask my questions. Is there some way to convert this neck to work on a short-scale bass? If the answer to the above question is yes, how would I go about adding an extension to the fingerboard? Frankly, I was looking at a 29-fret equivalent (26" from nut), but no less than a 24-fret (which is exactly 24" from the nut). Thank you.
