Yes, I'm sure you guys are tired of me asking a bunch of "Stupid" questions but I really want to know this:
You guys remember that Guitar neck I got in a trade from the guy here, I believe he uses DARKSIDE as a username...
It's a "24" fret neck but the 23 and 24th are over-hanged
This is the neck by the way when he still had it)
If I oredered a body from Warmoth or something beside maybe modding the pocket a bit ti fit the neck. would I have to move the pocket back some or no?
Also, That cheap ass Gio my mom brought for $16 bucks, I was thinking maybe to just slap the neck on it and try to route out the pickup cavities, neck pocket, and of course add a 7 string bridge.
Or would something like this be a better way to go? 7-String Neck Pocket Routed Ash Strat Body | Allparts.com
I guess I want to know how hard would converting the Gio to a 7 string would be?
I dont think you would move the pocket back, unless there were more than 24 frets, as it would throw off the intonation by moving the center of the string away from the 12th fret. If the neck is shorter, or longer, than normal, it could throw off your scale length, and you might have to move the bridge to compensate. Also, being a 7, you may want a slightly longer scale length? You might even have to move the neck forward in the pocket, away from the bridge. hmmmm.
