how many frets do you need/want?


I have 3 electric guitars. 24, 24, and 22 fret.


I love my 22 fretter for clean/jazz/chords, but I don't think I'd ever buy a guitar that didn't have 24 frets again unless it was for a very specific purpose.


Also, just bought a new guitar at 26.5 scale length and I don't think I'll ever go back. What an amazing difference that extra inch makes. (dick jokes incoming) (cum jokes incumming)

24 is the highest I'll go, i dont really go that high very often though

would love to try a baritone guitar sometime soon though, I feel as though my play style is more suited to lower tunings

I could do 22 or 24, but 24 preferably.

19 is also great. Playing that high on an acoustic is obnoxious

i never understood microtonal guitars. it sounds exactly the same as a normal guitar, just some of the tones are out of tune.

Microtones are fucking dumb and people need to learn about alternative temperaments instead

That said, I usually don't play very high because I know that unless a guitar has very specific frets, it's usually slightly out of tune (even with "perfect" intonation) past the 12th fret

I think all my guitars have 24, which is the ideal amount. I never actually use frets 23 and 24 but only having 22 would just be weird.

I have 22, 24 is nice though.

I've got anywhere from 21-24 on my electrics. I never really use the 23rd or 24th frets but I have fairly large hands, so the extra access is nice with 24 frets.

I never play high up the neck. Why bother?
#24
I have 14 guitars most are 24 fret but a few are 22, anything more is just a waste IMO like those 36 fret guitars Washburn used to make.

he's not wrong. I bet if I knocked my acoustic slightly out of tune, recorded a song, and told you it was done on a microtonal guitar you'd believe me

I might, or I might not. I've found some microtonal works really interesting, and I think that having control of what microtones you use, and simply tuning your instrument to drop-flatterthanawitchestit and playing G C D are very different things.

I'm open to potential rather than childish and generalised dismissal. And this is only to speak of pieces that use a traditional song structure or techniques: as with folks like Ikeda, using only just intonantion OR 12 tone practice would preclude his interest in relative pitches and experiments with microtones.

I'd like to point out that after you know about things like Pythagorean and Ptolemaic temperament, microtones are the childish equivalent

That's cute of you and all, but as I said: Attica. If your preference is to denounce the work of artists who have used various microtonal systems then that's your failure.

My electrics have 22 frets while my acoustic has only 20.

I find it annoying only having 20 frets on the acoustic because when I want to practice songs on acoustic strings to build up my finger strength I can't play some solos that require hitting a bend up to 24 on the high e.

Am yet to find a song I play that goes higher than a 24 so bending on the 22 is fine with the electrics.
