I think you simply just sand your fretboard to make like sort of valley shape. It's done so you can do crazy bends easily with you fingers since your fingers wil no longer touching the fretboard.
Gear:
Black Jackson Dinky 2
Peavey Envoy 110
and that's it.

A scalloped neck is when the frets are sanded down so they are a bit curved instead of flat

Its done so that the player can pin down the string without it slipping, like when doing vibratos. Look at Yngwie Malmsteen's guitar

that link shows a scallopped neck

and scalloping is in my opinion the most amazing invention on the guitar
since it not only allows for more control during bends and vibrato
but you can change the pitch of notes just by pressing harder on the strings
thus you can change the pitch of whole chords at once

and i find them oh so comfortable to boot

according to Yngwie they are harder to play, but since hes Yngwie it probably doesnt affect him
Go get your shovel.

Well his action on his guitar is as high as it goes so I see how it would be tough.
As I see the ignorance of humanity engulfing reason and sanity like a wave of perpetual defeat and misery I ask myself, when the hell is everyone going to shut up and actually think?

jumbo frets work like scallopped, in that u need a light touch when u fret, ur u can make the note go sharp.
