JS guitars.. 22 frets or ? Would S neck work on JS body?

Hey guys. Would an S series 22 fret neck work on a JS body? I'm assuming the JS is a 22 fret guitar. I can't remember, but I'm thinking with my Video's of Satch that those were 22 fret guitars.? Anyway, my S series is cool, but I love that JS body. I'd just like to use it with the S series neck I have which is 22 frets. Also, the S series has a low pro edge and wondering if it would just drop in if the neck would work with the JS body? I dig that body, but don't want to buy a new guitar.. It would be cool to buy just the body and customize it..
Thanks
Tim

Neck radius is different. Not sure what the heel width is for each but the neck pocket shape either. The Lo Pro Edge is a 430mm radius. I know the Edge Pro that was used in the JS used shims to achieve the correct radius and you'd just take those out if you're using the S neck.

The LP Edge, depending on the original tremolo that came with the JS could just drop right in.

It can definitely be done, but everything depends on the year and series of both your neck and the body you buy. The S-series mostly came with 22-fret wizards (1 or 2). The neck pocket on JS bodies will be 56, 57, or 58mm wide depending on the year. measure your heel to determine which body you need.

edit: BTW....radius wont matter. If I'm understanding correctly, your using the Lo-Pro from the same guitar as the neck. The radius of each should be the same.

Hey guys.. Thanks so much. RGTFanatic. I'm using the Low Pro Edge from the S series. I don't know what's used with the JS, but I just like that body shape, etc,. I thought it would be cool to use the 22 fret neck from the S on a new JS body, but I understand there are some issues. I'll probably be better off waiting to find a good used JS.
I love that body style that the JS uses.. Doesn't it use an older body style called the saber or something?

I believe the 540R (Radius) is the "original" JS. There are a number of people who make new 540R bodies too and you can find them on the bay. Might be a better alternative if you're just looking for a thicker super strat style body to go with your S neck.
