    Hey guys, would a Vintage Modified Jaguar neck fit and work on my Squier Strat? I can navigate a 24” scale much better than a 25.5.
    Thanks

    No, the bridge is in the wrong spot - it would not intonate.

    Thanks Dr. Do I have any options on neck replacement?

    You can get a custom "conversion neck" from a place like Warmoth. They offer a 24-3/4 scale neck that will bolt on with no intonation problems. Other custom makers do as well. Maybe some even offer other short scale lengths, I'm not sure.

    You're welcome. :)

    I see Warmoth has a few conversion necks in stock, starting at $157.

    Edit: They have a Tele conversion neck in roasted maple for $197. You wouldn't even have to worry about finish with that one. Add stainless frets and you're all set.
