you can get 27 Frets Guitar by Caparison look at the Horus models and also the Applehorn models since they both have 27 frets
#11
Why don't you buy a short scale(like a kids size) guitar put some regular sized strings(IDK 10s 11s...) on it and tune it higher. That seems more practical to me. 29 frets seems ridiculous.

Then again, I suppose you could just take up Ukelele.

Agree with Caparison. Great guitars.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

but Hamer also makes a 36 fret:Virtuoso (1987 - 1991) - Small contoured double cutaway body with a glued-in 36-fret neck (26.25 inch scale length) with maple fingerboard, six-on-a-side reversed peghead and a scalloped neck/body joint. Fitted with a single Seymour Duncan "Hot Rails" pickup and either Floyd Rose or Kahler trem

i know Mike Angelo Batio has a 29 fret (titanium?) guitar he used in his Speed Kills video, but i can't see the headstock good enough to see who made it

you know you could always try a digtech whammy pedal for solos, and shift your pitch as needed, you could raise the pitch of your guitar as far as 2 octaves up if you wanted,

Take jack white, if he didn't have the whammy pedal on the black math solo, he would need a 29 fret guitar,

oh and no, Michael angelo uses a 22 fret twin neck V shaped dean,

The frets above 24 would be used mostly for tapping.

whats the point of more frets??? Just get a bass lol. Or damn, many people here barely use the bottom frets or some ppl like my friend has a 24 fret guitar but only uses 22 and his other guitar has 22 frets and he uses that one more....., lol and out of all the people u had to get 4000 frets. lol i guess its just personal preference, but you will not beat rusty cooley in nonsense shredding. lol
