I was looking at this today: http://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/msg/1633659961.html

The guy claims it is 22.5" scale. But I can barely see but think I can count 22 frets which indicates it is 24" scale. Also were 22.5" scales even available in '78 Musicmasters? Not really interested in this at that price, but the neck thing confused me and I was wondering if there was some info I did not know about the available Fender scale lengths.

my 78 neck is 24" scale with 22 frets, they only offered the 22.5" scales in the earlier years of production

thanks for the confirmation! that CL seller is doing a disservice to himself indicating the shorter scale as the 24" is more desirable.

If it's 22.5" scale it has 21 frets with a fret marker in the last fret. With these guitars just look at the last fret and you can tell.

Dot - 21 fret 22.5"
No dot (with one on the one before last fret) - 22 fret 24"

This one is 24"
