Are they made?


The strat is the perfect guitar for my hands, but I need a guitar with 24 frets to play certain solos.

Several companies make super-strats with 24 frets, but they aren't really the same feel. I'm assuming you mean an actual Fender. I don't know if they make a 24-fret version, but it's possible.

Essentially, I'm looking for any guitar with a Fender shaped neck and 24 frets.

I know about Charvels and stuff, but they dont have the necks; just the body shape.

Just found something you could probably use.

If you find out the radius on a Fender, you could use that as an option when getting a Carvin. Don't know if it's the same shape though :/

see if you can find an MIJ HM (heavy metal) strat from the 80s, i'm pretty sure those have 24 frets

EDIT: bingo, good old wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_HM_Strat

I sure saw a video about a 24 fret strat. Or maybe a 7 string one. I dont remember. But it was from rockongoodpeople on youtube. They were fooling around some music store called chicken something.

Why not put a 24-fret Warmoth Strat neck on a Fender Strat? I am sure it has been done before.

definitely do-able, but you won't be able to have both the 24 frets and a neck pickup. the fretboard extension will hit the pickup.

Really easy! Just buy a new neck.
Or get a custom made neck from a place such as warmoth.
But it seems you wan't a curled headstock...
Look at the Washburn X-Series! ALL of them have a strat shaped neck and a strat shaped body. All have 24 frets. Even my cheap beginner's X10.
