Anybody ever tried these?

Are frets beyond the 24th practical at all?

um i wouldn't imagine it would be easy to play as the frets would be pretty close together at the top end. I have heard about one of these on UG but i'm pretty sure it was a custom job. Have you seen one for sale?
Quote by marsvoltaguy
i say both. you always have the option to not use the pedal at all but it will still be there like that obsessed chick you took to homecoming and never called again, sitting there waiting for your call. so yea both

What an incredibly pointless post. Did you really need to go ahead and attempt to discredit that? I should hope not.

On-topic, I would imagine that it wouldn't be easy to play a guitar with more than 24 frets, but it might have its purposes here and there.

I tried out a Danelectro like this that had 30 something frets about 5-6 years ago. It wasn't very playable and sounded somewhat nasal.

It sounds really really...annoying.
Try playing high E string, 36th fret, with gain, trem picking.
Then try the same on low E string

There is really is no point, unless you are playing some insane Bumblefoot tapping

For Tapping I think is the main use of the 36ers, I wouldnt mind trying one or having one aside but not for main guitar.

I don't see how it's pointless. So many people are ignorant towards 25+ guitars mainly because they only think 1 dimensionally. Instead of having it tuned to E you could tune it to F# and have 3 octaves from there.

Uli John Roths guitar has 33 frets i think... If my memory serves me correctly it translates to 6 octaves or something...... the three highest frets are doubled or something and there all scallopped.... Uli can play it very well too.... Listen to the Live at Castle Donnington Album for proof....

I believe it's the angle that the picture was taken at.
I think no one is retarded enough to put a string off the fretboard.
I've heard of fretless guitars, but fretboardless strings are just..meh

yes, it's the angle.

Dang it, I was hoping I was going to be able to identify the Roth one, lol. But yeah, there's a 7-string Uli Roth one that has 33 or 36 frets. You can see it on ebay, some said Malsteem has one. It looks like a tear/rain drop, and its divided in color like a Yin-Yang...

Edit:
Ok, just grabbed a picture of it, this is it. And it is only 32 frets. Reasonable...if you're into that really pinchy high stuff. It's called the Uli John Roth "Sky Guitar".

The way that dragon guitar is constructed is like this: normal six strings on an extended fretboard. Then, the 7th string is on an unfretted piece of ebony (instead of rosewood like the rest of the neck), which makes it seem to blend in with the background.

You could get 3 octaves alot more practically though from having a 7 or 8 string and fewer extra frets.

It'd have it's use for tappers though, granted.

Ok, here's the thing about frets over 24, I don't perceive them being extremely useful for anything other than tapping. Even tapping would seem to present difficulties simply because the frets are in such close proximity to one another. I know that frets 20-24 are a bit of a pain in the butt to play because my fingers are not very small, I can only imagine the difficulty of playing frets 24-33/34/whatever, even tapping seems like it could get to be a pain in the butt. Of course, I've never played anything with more than 24 frets, and I'm a big fan of good ol' standard tuning...

I actually own a Washburn EC-36, And its for sale also. I will only send to the UK though.

Its Neck thru 100% mint condition. One of only 500 ever made. With OHSC and case candy. I have put a Seymour Duncan Livewire metal and the bridge, and i still have the original pickup and warranty card.







I am suprised no one mentioned me as of yet, I am probably the only person on these boards ever to have owned a 36 fretter. (Search for my name etc, I am pretty well known on these boards in the past (Ex Smod etc))

PM me if your interested and have money. (UK only please)

I am selling because i am now a full time bassist

Just imagine.. if you tuned down an octave you would have a 3 octave guitar starting in the bass range, with a usable upper end...

I still want an 8 string, and tune the bottom two to E and A so I can comp my own basslines, Charlie Hunter style.

Meshuggah style, woooo.

That is one hell of a flashy 36 fret guitar btw, how much does it cost? damn..
