real 24 fret guitars?

Hi. Can someone tell me which guitars are real 24 fret guitars and which are just 22 fret guitars with 2 extra frets added on?

Just guessing here...

Do you mean having real and meaningful access to those last 2 frets as opposed to having the additional frets without being able to reach them?

It's not even that simple man, some guitars that have 24 frets are actually 27-fret guitars with the last 3 frets sawed off, something about a neck pickup?

At risk of running TS off - did you mean what dannyalcatraz said?

Well according to this guy there's an actual scale modification or something you have to do to make a real 24 fret guitar. http://www.edroman.com/techarticles/22vs24.htm
I'm looking to get a PRS custom 24 so I'm just making sure it's done right and I'm not getting ripped off.

It involves a 22 fret guitar and a sharpie pen doesn't it?

Yeah, because i totally buy a Les Paul to sound like a tele.

Credibility= 0.

Maybe he is referring to guitars that have come to be viewed as common 24-fret guitars (for instance, superstrats) as opposed to guitars styled after traditional models but with extra frets? (such as, LTD ECs to Les Pauls)

Ed Roman is full of shit. I wouldn't trust anything he claims.

Ed Roman has some good stuff on his website...but sometimes he left this planet while writing his rants.

I seem to remember some guitar I played had an extra bit of fingerboard extending a bit off the neck, I think it was a peavey-22 fret though.
