    Nobody? Guess I need to send some PMs
     
  3. 34" scale standard.
     
  4. I'd guess about 2' 10" from the Roger's nut to the end of his neck

    34" standard scale is nut to bridge. You need that or the neck length from the nut to fret 24?

    Mine is not in front of me here at work but...unless I am off in my thinking...

    The 12th fret is half the scale length:

    34" * 0.5 = 17"

    The 24th fret is half again:

    34" * 0.75 = 25.5"

    If you want to the end of the fretboard add maybe half an inch - about 26" (as previously measured).

    Later

    Im going to order a Modern 5 but with jj pickups. Im still debating about the pup placement though. I was wondering how much room id have to slap, considering 60's j placement would put the neck pup 28' from the nut. I guess that leaves me 2 inches between the neck and neck pup. Im also debating if I want the bridge pup in the 70's location. Thanks for the replies
