Nothing out of the ordinary...

João Cabeleira, "Xutos & Pontapés" (a portuguese rock band) lead guitar player uses a custom Washburn with 29 frets.
He's considered the portuguese Slash.

That guy and that guitar look so awesome.
But the frets get larger again towards the body, wtf?

MABs Quad-guitar had 27 frets too.

27 frets, FTW!

One of the main advantages of 27 fret guitars is that they usually have supreme upper fret access for the 24th fret, so even if you don't use those extra frets, you still profit from having them.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!

35th fret? whut

Thats cool that they started skipping one after the 27th fret though, it makes it actually playable.. Not sure why one would need that high, but w/e

João Cabeleira is considered the portuguese Slash because of his playing stile, not the guitar...

Also, Slash uses Les Pauls, and Cabeleira uses 29 frets Washburns.

My Capa Horus has 27 frets.
I think the whole reason Ibanez started this was because Peter Joseph just switched from Caparison to Ibanez. He's playing the Ibanez prototype right now, which is 27 frets with H/S pickup configuration. It's wierd seeing Ibanez doing something like this though, although I'm very happy with what I have.

I'd say that a man with a 29 fret guitar probably plays a bit differently than Slash, considering that Slashs' solos rarely went up too high.

Yeah, the frets go to full steps because it would be ridiculous to play otherwise.

IIRC Uli Jon Roth had another Sky Guitar with 42 frets at some point. What's really cool is that if you look closely, you'll notice it still has a neck pickup underneath the fretboard.

I think I would buy a Caparison wth 27 frets (even though the big price differance) rather than tha 27 fret Xiphos. Not a fan of the Edge III.

^They've already come up twice in this thread.
I think if he 27 fret Xiphos gets sold well, they may make a 7 sooner or later. I'm wondering how many of these I'm going to see around.

It would've been better if they put a decent bridge there.
It's pretty expensive too for what it is, I wouldn't pay 200 more USD for 3 frets I'll never get to use and a Dimarzio Air Norton S.
