I've seen 12 fret guitars, 20, and the always impressive- zero.

I've heard of a guitar with five colored frets, but they don't play well.

Yes, and they tend to inhibit your musical abilities.

instead of writing "odd" fret numbers, you should have put "unusual" or "strange" fret numbers, because technically 21 is an odd number, and there are 21 fret guitars.

this is absolutely, 100% correct.
For example, Dave Mustaine has a signature coffee mix.

I never understood the point of a fretless instrument...

I think there's some SX guitars on rondomusic.com with 30 frets. I'm not so much dazzled by it's fret count but the size of the bridge.

Should have looked at the headstock.

I don't know, I know the least important thing is looks, but I wouldn't be caught dead playing with that unless it's tone was absolutely stunning.

It is. But it's really not that gross. It's cool. And really, really comfortable.

Does it come in any other color? Maybe the yellow is just turning me off.

Dark blue, now there's a sexy color...

I think for a guitar with that unique of a shape I'd put something fancy like an iridescent paint job. God knows how much that would cost.

One, three, five, seven... aside from twelve and twenty-four, it's good.

beat me to it lol i almost got one, but really... nobody has fingers small enough for a 36th fret. you'd need a toothpick to fret it.

Maybe tapping with the pick, but that's all I can think of.

they sound a lot warmer and the sound really is in your fingers with them. You can slide through notes properly on them too but they're harder to press down on

In my experience, fretless instruments have a much lower action.

Ibanez's BTB basses.



23 and a half frets FTW.
