Guitar neck help


hey all,
i have a LTD h-50 that is really old and i wanna work on it and make like a fun custom guitar out of it. First id like to change the neck but i have a question.
The LTD H-50 Specs are:

  • Bolt-on neck
  • Scale: 25-1/2"
  • Agathis body
  • Neck/Fretboard: Maple/rosewood
  • Inlays: Dots w/model name at 12th Fret
  • Pickups: ESP LH-100 set
  • Electronics: Volume, tone, 3-way toggle
  • Hardware: Black
  • Bridge: Tune-o-matic w/stop tailpiece
  • Binding: None
  • Frets: 22 XJ

There is a LTD MH-50 neck for sale on ebay that i was checking out and thought would be cool to add but i am not sure if this could work. 

My question is, can i put a 24 fret neck on a 22 fret body with the same scale length?


any suggestions? 


There are a lot of variables that will affect whether or not it will work. The biggest, where the heal of the neck is on the current guitar vs where the heal of the new neck is. In the end, the nut needs to be 25.5" away from the bridge saddles. I would say the only way you could know for sure is to have the new neck in your possession.

I'm not sure I'd bother, myself.

I found a lot of information on this topic.
