Either a superstrat, or a V, depending on what you're more comfortable with.
- Gibson Flying V 120 #1 (White)
- Gibson Flying V 120 #2 (Cherry)
- Gibson SG Standard ('61 style)
- Jackson DK2M

- ENGL Fireball 60
- Avatar 4x12

- Many pedals, plus other stuff

In that case, look at the SuperStrat designs with the deeper cutaway for the best fret access. The Ibanez Andy Timmons AT100CL is a good example.

V's are very good. But super strats, especially ESP's mh's have brilliant fret access, I think.
#12
I have played V´s from Jackson and their realy good in the 22-24 Frets section!

But probably any V (except the reversed limited Gibson V) should match this!!

how useful


Some people like to wrap their thumb around the other side of the neck, even when playing on the highest frets, making double cut aways like on the SG useful.

But yeah, V's will give you the best access to the 22nd/24th fret if you get a good V, followed by super strat shapes.

The best access I've seen is the ESP NV, like this custom shop version

ProTone Pedals: Attack Overdrive
Fractal Audio: AxeFX 2
Engl: Fireball 60
Zilla: Fatboy 2x12
Carvin: DC700
Carvin: Vader 7
Schecter: KM-7 MKii
Schecter: Banshee 8 Passive
Jackson: DK2M

SGs.

And, since it's yet unmentioned, Fender offset shapes give good upper fret access.

I like PRS, both the Custom and the Singlecut models have a carve to facilitate high fret access that looks beautiful.

Cheesy? And you've HEARD they have great fret access?

Sounds like you've never even touched a V before.

They are the BEST for fret access because there is NOTHING in the way.

Gary Kramer R36. Better 29th fret access than most guitars' 20th fret access. The R29 too, probably, if you want a 6string. But seriously, check those guitars out. also really comfortable for playing both seated and standing.

From what I've played I'd say it's easily the 27 fret Xiphos.


Well, from what I've heard, it has bad 27th fret access
And my R36 has bad 36th fret access

I have to agree the XPT700 has great 24th fret access. If you want a standard range though look at the XPT300, any explorer, or any normal V.

Um... No? It doesn't even have a 24th fret, and the access looks terrible.

i'd have to say from personal experience, the Ibanez RG570 has phenomenal 24-fret access, at least to me, then again, my hands are ridonculously (yes, even more ludicrous than ridiculous) over-sized in comparison to most. Also could be that i've become somewhat of a strat/superstrat fanboy, meh, but yeah, that's my 2-cents haha.
