What guitar has 25 frets?

You're a dreamer, but your dream came true.
Gary Kramer Guitars R36 Turbulence. Seven strings, 36 frets (3 octaves) and one pickup.

There's a 6 string version of it called the R29. It has a single coil in the neck.

i'm perfectly fine with 24, more then i need really.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

Haha was just about to post a picture of that Kramer guitar, nice call.

Personally, I have never had a problem playing with only 22 frets. However, I'm sure that there is some custom shop out there that could make a guitar with 36 frets, although if you ask me that many frets are ridiculous.

An easier solution might be to get a pitch pedal and set it to go up one octave. Playing on the 12th fret would have the octave of the 24th, etc.

It's actually a pretty nice looking guitar. I'd get the 29 fretter if I could find the damn thing in a store...

ya the kramer is cool. but shes not me man, dont get me wrong i mean shes sexy in her own way. but i need a lady in the street, AND a freak in the bed. im being picky, and im being shallow.i guess i cant ask for it all. im thinking a more conventional shape with that same orgasmic high fret action.

24 frets are enough for me. But if you like more, Conklin makes guitars and basses with 36 frets, but they're pretty expensive.

Get a pitch shifter pedal. I've never felt the need of more than 24 frets.

Wow! Probably the ugliest guitar I've ever seen.

On Topic: Nope, I'm satisfied with 24 frets. Haha, imagine a guitar with 36 frets, but the extra octave is lower!

nah I've thought that too. Its fun to play slide past the limits of the fretboard.


you can go off the fret board with a slide. it easily adds on at least another10 frets after the board ends.

Washburn made the 'Stephen's Extended Cutaway' guitar in the 1980's. It had a lot more frets.

Uli Jon Roth's Sky Guitar also is extended range.

I never had a problem with 22 or 24.

Meh, im fine with 24, even with 22, you dont NEED 36 frets, because then you'll just want another ocatave.

ya. a philosophical debate would probably conclude that i only want more frets cause its possible to have more than i have right now. its like sex and potatoe chips then huh.
bleh you guys are right. it aint too necessary. 27 would be my limit. some of those guitars just look......redonkulous for lack of a better word. a pitch pedal could work too. thats alot cheaper than buying a new guitar.

I personally have a hard time playing above about 20 or so with any dexterity. My fingers are big and those frets are tiny. I cant imagine what fret 36 would feel like.
