    Based on the available specs it *should* fit, but the only way to know for sure is to bolt it on and see if it'll intonate.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

    The neck is 3 times the cost of the entire guitar
    For about the same cash you could get a neck from warmoth

    yeah.... after lookin more into it im just gonna return it. i like haveing a guitar with a floyd but the neck needing what it needs plus the bridge is starting to rust in places so brand new one is 299, mine was 60. + 180 for a neck + 90 for a new bridge its just not worth it. was nice while i had it but it just needs more than i can give it atm

    With cracks like that, they should have just given it to you, really. Or parted it out.

    I'm not sure that Warmoth makes a neck to fit a 24 fret Charvel / Jackson pocket. Their 22 fret necks also have a 2 3/16 heel while Charvel / Jackson uses 2 1/4, so it'll fit but probably won't be tight.

    No worries. I don't know about 24 frets, but Musikraft will make 22 fret necks with a Charvel 2 1/4" heel.

    It's really not worth putting that kind of money into that guitar.

    It would be a fun project to work on, however, if you've got some luthiery skills. You'd have to lift the fretboard, open the crack and force in some titebond, glue up the loosened fretboard, then clamp it til the glue sets (overnight).
