So in the solo, it calls for frets 22-27. Is there any way to reach these without an extended neck? Who even makes guitars with necks like that?

I believe in the "personal opinion" school of thought, I doubt you've heard of it. Now, go waste your time on something that doesn't annoy me

Stryper was an 80's band I doubt there were fretboards that went that high back then. I'm guessing whammy pedal

There's no way to play a 27th fret without one, no. You can try to bend up there from your 24th, but it'd be awkward. Then there's whammy pedals and whammy bars, but both of these would be quite awkward as well, at least... it won't make you sound like tab.

And on a completely different note... Christianguitar.org? Wtf? Only songs about Jesus or something? Stuff that doesn't contain any sexual or antisocial/-religion themes?

Well who wants to sound like a tab anyways?

Use your 24th fret and pull the whammy bar up to pitch. Stryper was endorsed by Carvin back on that album, only 24 frets there. Or if you have a middle position pickup, fret the string off of it. That's how Vai hits the "27th fret" in eugene's trick bag.
I love all 5 (sold a couple) of my Carvin X-100b's.

no offense to UG, but there aren't always tabs i'm looking for. I check for those tabs i cant find on christianguitar.org and 911tabs.com, just as alternatives.

pffttt, 27 frets is nothing. Asomodai has/had a 36 fret guitar. now that was a crazy looking beast...


on topic, id say your best bet is to either bend it (fingers or bar) or find a harmonic that is the same note. if youve got a 24 fet guitar then bending might be easier, but with a 21 fret guitar then bending up 3 whole steps might be a bit intimidating.
