That would be a hell of a guitar- but you'd need a longer neck just to be able to play it. I think you have to buy it custom- made. That means it'll be expensive.

On eBay maybe. I heard Asmodai got a guitar with a lot of frets (36 maybe?) I don't know from where though.

EDIT: Ah-ha I was right!

You could try and persuade Asomodai into selling his 36 fret Washburn to you
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

whats the point tho? i for one, wouldnt see myself using the extra 12 frets

and even so, it would have to have a cutout body that would look really wierd (imagine 1/4 or corner if you will, of your guitar's body, gone, to make room for the fretting hand to fret the 24-36 frets)

It would be a bitch to get to those frets. Here's my idea: Get a cheap 7-string, like an Ibanez AX-7 or a Schecter, and restring it with a high-A string. You'd need a new nut of course, but it wouldn't be that hard, just use an .008 gauge string.

That's the best way of going about it I would think, though you have to remember once it gets to a certain point the notes should stop sounding, or at least lose tone that high, its the same with going too low.

I don't know from experience, but I would expect something like this to happen.

^But the A string wouldn't go that high. I mean go down to a store and try out a pitch shifter, set it 2 octaves up and play past the 12th fret. You can still hear it,amd still has tone. Pianos, violins, all sorts of instruments go up way high than a guitar and they sound fine. Actually, now that you think about it, a Whammy would be the best idea, then you wouldn't have to re-adapt your playing for the extra string (you'd have to get used to the idea that the high E isn't the highest string anymore) and your wouldn't have to reach way up into the ultra high frets, just use a pedal.

ya, the cheapest way is going to make it custom, just measure it out and make a custom neck and fretboard

If you have a 29 fret guitar, and the frets got smaller.. there wouldn't be any frets haha

Batio has a 29 fret guitar made out of like airplane aluminum or something, and Uli Roth has one with like a 3 octave range on one string I think.

I'd imagine having a whammy pedal, and a good FR, along with an octave pedal, on the 29th fret.
Awesome.

I'm always a bit amused about guitars like this. I seldom use notes past the 19th fret as it starts to be...well...unmusical I guess.

36 frets... hows there any room for pickups? =)


the ways there room is because the body is normally like a normal guitar just the neck is much longer meaing u will have to reach further away to hti the first frets and wat not

i think it useless because past 24
u really barely hear the notes it sounds like dead notes

even at 22 u suaully get that sound
i think its ridiculous

Michael Angelo Batio used to have a Washburn EC-36M in the Nitro days around 1988.

Some guitars only employ 1 humbucker.
Usually coupled with coil split/tapping for more versatility.

Ok, can anybody else understand this? If he's saying what I think he is saying, he is wrong. Brian May used a Burns Double Six, Gibson LP, Gibson Flying V, a Tele, an Inabez JS, a Parker Fly and of course, the Red Special.

I wish I had a 29 Fret Guitar too, but all of them cost like 2,000 dollars. I know that Michael Angelo Batio has a wierd looking 29 fret guitar.
