Ah, got it confused. For some reason I thought the second run was 24" and 25.5". Thanks!

I'd heard this too but it's probably 3rd run conversion 24"

Is there any other guitars with 24" conversion necks? I can't find any 24" conversion necks in general. All I can ever find on parts websites is 24.75" conversion

Less than the Jagmasters:

None of them are perfect conversions, other than the 1960s 22.5/24" necks, so be sure there is some play on the bridge saddles.

This is a super cool resource.
Looks like to me that it only doesn't line up by about 0.069" which is like 1.7mm? I feel like it wouldn't be too hard to set up a bridge to compensate for that.
Just thinking about the short scale jazzmaster I have in my head..
