    I am replacing the neck on my '96 hamer cruise (a jazz for all purposes) and the neck I ordered from Warmoth came a little shorter than the original, about an inch shorter from nut to heal... does anyone think this will cause a big deal with the string tension? Or will their be any issues that I am not thinking of? I haven't started to hack up the neck yet, so i can always return the sucker... but any advice on all of this would be wonderful...

    Aside from every single fret being horribly out of tune, i don't see any problems. you're going to have to move the bridge location to use that neck.
