Well sorta useless thread but, I like to play alot of metal solo's, and I get frustrated when I come across a solo I wanna learn but it goes all the way down tot he 24'th fret, all my guitars are 22 >.>
Does anyone think it's worth it to get a 24 fret guitar or just stick witht he 22'ers

I like the 24s, more space up there and 12 more notes...why not?


You mean 2 more notes right?

I think he may mean 2 extra notes per string (x6) = 12?

Looks like a heavily modded FAT model. Don't quote me on that though.

You tempted me.

most of my guitars have 24 frets but there are two exception my RR3 and S470DXQM have 22 frets. i think worth having two extra frets.
ESP Vintage 4
Fender American Special Jazz
Fender American Deluxe Precision
Ibanez SR700
Jackson DXMG
Fender American Standard Telecaster
SWR Black Beauty

yea man, i bought a cheap ibanez the other day with 24 frets, they good

i never use all 24, but it's always hard to get to the last couple frets. so at least having 24 makes it easier to use 22. but you dont really need it

Ive been thinking the same question for the past couple of months.

For me, I dont think it would be worth it - but thats just because I dont think im ready yet. Ive just started to have a go at a few Children of Bodom songs, but Im not skilled enough to play anywhere near the speeds they reach.

Also my current guitar is still rather good.

Ultimately, Id say its upto you.. on how much you play guitar, and how often you get frustrated at a 24-fret solo, and how much money you have :P

couldn't the effect be almost the same if the cutaway on the guitar was much larger? so you can bend up to get the next octave?
#11
Get it if you're sure really like the guitar. Don't downgrade just for 24 frets. But like the others said, you only get 2 more notes.

True enough but I don't think I've EVER seen anyone use those frets on the lower strings.

Besides, it's only 2 new notes; the rest are just different positions for old notes.

Its not too necessary, most of the time it can be solved by massive prebends.
#14
yes, only 2 new notes but 12 new positions, it usually allows for another mode. I use the 23/24th fret with the low E and A often, I keep my thumb well behind the neck when playing up there (thin fingers help too).

You mean another position in most keys; that's not what modes are.

Why not just get a guitar with 28 frets? I think Yngwie has one!
and on 1 side that's a joke
on the other side, amount of frets is rlly important in metal I guess, so why not?

yep, that's pretty much it. if it's happening a lot and you have spare money, get something with 24 frets.

Bear in mind too that 24 fret guitars have to move the neck pickup backwards, which will have a slightly negative impact on sustain, and also removes some of the dynamic and harmonic response of the neck pickup.

Yes, makes the 2 pickups sound slightly more similar to each other.

yeah, the neck pickup will sound a little different. i wouldn't necessarily say it sounds worse though- it makes it a little brighter/clearer, which can be better for metal and shred (but worse for more classic styles).

Well i mostly play rhythm, and i prefer 22. Whatever you want bro, get it. It will be your guitar. Get what YOU want.
#25
