    Why would you do this?
    I mean sure, it would probably be fun but what's the point?

    It shan't work. The Jackson has 22 frets and the Douglas has 24. The actual neck on the Douglas ends just about under where the 24th fret lies, and it is therefore longer than the Jackson neck. If (IF!!) the neck heel fits into the pocket of the Jackson body at all then the neck will be very much off scale and impossible to intonate unless you also move the bridge accordingly.

    Then again, you have the option of reshaping the neck heel of the Douglas neck and shortening that end so the scale matches up, but then the fretboard overhang would bump into the neck pickup and you'd have to cut off the fretboard and be left with 22 frets again like you already had on the Jackson neck, or ditch the neck pup altogether.

    There's also the thing about the locking nut on the Douglas, but I guess you could just leave it unlocked. With all this, I can't see what the point is, sorry. :shrug:
