Shredneck? Yay or nay?

Hey everyone,
I'm probably going to be getting the Jason Becker ShredNeck to use at school in my free periods and I wanted to know if any of you have every used one and if so would you recommend it? Ill just be using it for scale practice and warm ups.

Opinions?
Cheers

I wouldn't buy one of these things - they'll probably feel different to the neck and frets that you're used to [unless this is based on a guitar you use].

I had a similar idea - play guitar in my free periods, but I decided it would be easier to just do schoolwork and hang out with friends in my frees and play guitar at home.

Nope, you'd still be that weird guy with half a guitar sat singing to himself.

Your much better off warming up your hands with basic stretches and mentally preparing yourself for practice.

If you insist on practicing at school.. Buy a beater acoustic and chill out.

This. A million times. Unless you're at like an art school, or college where you're around musicians who would understand. Just take a nap or some shit.

Honestly dude, what are eight frets going to do for you? seems pointless.
