I think the reason is doable is because of the long screws on the Duosonic bridge, but not so with the Jag... But ive been known to be mistaken before..

The Mustang was also available with the 22.5" scale neck, and those have an identical bridge (in terms of dimensions) to the Jaguar.

^ Yep.

Imagine the 22.5" neck as basically being a 24" neck with a fret lopped off.

Neat idea. Someone should create a new species of super Jag. Shorter scale, and even longer string length behind the bridge.

Gentlemen, the future of plonk is now.
I want maximum "Thunk" and "Thwack" when I do muting, and fast tremolo picking. I want percussiveness and quick decay. Now if only there was a guitar that offered that Oh wait! The Jag! - blueavenger

Specifically the first fret, like you took out the bit between the nut and the first fret. Not the twenty-first fret.
