No, it usually means it has 24 frets instead of 22 or 21. I think.

Esp/LTD JH-200
Ibanez RG2EX2

's the opposite of a kiddy guitar.

I think scale length measures the distance from the nut to the bridge (not to sure about this)

Also to person above me 25.5 doesn't mean 24 frets most fender strats are 25.5 and have 21/22 frets

The longer the scale the more tension on the strings.

Fenders and most Ibbys are 25.5 scales and most Gibsons are 24.75 (I think). Longer scale length means that the strings have more tension. It's like using heavier strings.
