if you want scalloped high frets you're really narrowing down your options there. jems are about your main option, i'd have said.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

You're going to have to go to a pretty competent tech to have your frets scalloped.

yeah. and you'll totally devalue the guitar.

Here's an option: find a Superstrat you like- used is better in this case- and then get a new neck from Warmoth- they DO sell necks with scalloped fretboards

From what iv seen its $10-$15 per fret but not all stores will do it.

You'll get most of the effect of having a guitar with a scalloped fingerboard just by having really big fretwires.

Scalloping frets is pretty simple, you sand/file the fretboard down a bit

I'd look for a used Ibanez and do the scalloping myself. Have you ever played a guitar with scalloped frets? It is not for everyone (I'm not a fan really)

An electric guitar is a guitar that uses a pickup to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical impulses. The most common guitar pickup uses the principle of direct electromagnetic induction. The signal generated by an electric guitar is too weak to drive a loudspeaker, so it is amplified before sending it to a loudspeaker.

Anyway, I'd recommend Ibanez. And I'd only recommend their guitars with a ZPS or an original Edge tremolo. Those seem to stay in tune the best, and if you don't like the Original Edge, you can outfit it with an original or Gotoh Floyd because the spacing for the studs is the same.
