Hi. Can someone tell me which guitars are real 24 fret guitars and which are just 22 fret guitars with 2 extra frets added on?

Just guessing here...

Do you mean having real and meaningful access to those last 2 frets as opposed to having the additional frets without being able to reach them?

It's not even that simple man, some guitars that have 24 frets are actually 27-fret guitars with the last 3 frets sawed off, something about a neck pickup?

Well according to this guy there's an actual scale modification or something you have to do to make a real 24 fret guitar. http://www.edroman.com/techarticles/22vs24.htm
I'm looking to get a PRS custom 24 so I'm just making sure it's done right and I'm not getting ripped off.

It involves a 22 fret guitar and a sharpie pen doesn't it?

Edit:
Most intelligent people will agree on the fact that a Les Paul has a nice meaty lead tone but chords sound like dung.


Factoid 1: A typical Les Paul will always sound muddy when you play chords !!!!!

Factoid 2: A Typical Les Paul is NEVER capable of sounding like a Strat or a Tele. !!!!!

Yeah, because i totally buy a Les Paul to sound like a tele.

Credibility= 0.

Maybe he is referring to guitars that have come to be viewed as common 24-fret guitars (for instance, superstrats) as opposed to guitars styled after traditional models but with extra frets? (such as, LTD ECs to Les Pauls)

Ed Roman has some good stuff on his website...but sometimes he left this planet while writing his rants.

I seem to remember some guitar I played had an extra bit of fingerboard extending a bit off the neck, I think it was a peavey-22 fret though.
