Hi im learning acoustic guitar at the moment and thinking of buying an electric soon and i just wanted to know a few things. I noticed some guitars have 22 frets whilst there are some that have 24 or more and i just wanted to know, what does that mean if you have more frets, does it give you an advantage over less frets or do you get more sounds or what? Also if you have 2 or 3 pickups what does that mean? Do you get different sounds, better sounds etc?
Any help is appreciated and sorry if this has been answered before.

Having more frets simply gives the advantage of getting into higher pitches. It's mostly a preference thing.

Different pickups/amount of pickups also just gives different/more sounds, again a preference thing.

oh for gods sake. 24 frets means just that. you have that much more to work with. It adds a few notes you can play, but you wont need to be soloing on the 23rd or 24th fret probably. as for pickups, thats an equally obvious answer. More sounds, different sounds, etc. it all depends on the specific guitar and pickups obviously. just go to the music shop and play a few guitars. pick one that sounds good and is comfortable to play. the end.

and ps- what the hell is with UG and this new ad I just saw on the top banner. its literally porn... since when does this site advertise porn? there are kids and stuff on here wtf
