Hello,
is there any guide or tips on how to scallop my high frets (16-24)?
would it be expensive to have it made by a store?
Thanks

There are many guides on the interwebs, so Google (or any search engine you prefer) is your friend here As far as getting it done by a pro, the cost will vary from country to country, city to city, store to store etc... I've seen services like that being done for a little as $50 and go as high as $300.

Never done it myself, as I am not a fan of scalloped fretboards, but I know a few people that just used a few round files (of different diameters, so that they would fit between the frets) and later smoothed it out with sandpaper.
And I know a guy who did a full Yngwie scallop on all his strats with sandpaper only.

So I'd say it is doable with minimal cost, lots of patience, adequate skills and a little sweat

different diameter wood dowels wrapped with sandpaper for the different size frets... i read there's also a "deeper" scallop towards the higher strings so you might have to set up the neck in a jig to get it all even...theres less of a scallop by the low e and it gets deeper as you go towards the high e... watch your frets though or you get in trouble

look on ebay for fender scallop... $50 i think... not sure about quality though
