I was looking at the Yngwie strat, and i've heard of scalloped necks before, but on a fully scalloped neck, cna you still play normal chords and ****?

yes, but its harder and takes some getting used to. if you fret too hard, you ill bend the string, causing it to go sharp. scalloped frets require a light touch, and are normally for people who play mainly lead.

Yeah, you can still play chords and slides and stuff, it just feels strange since you're not touching the fretboard at all.

Bends are smoother, as the the only contact is with the fret.

Personally, i love the scalloped neck, but DEFINATELY try one before you buy if you're interested - they are definately a love/hate thing!

Cool, considering buying a crappy strat copy and getting the pickguard wiring i have on my squire done to it (Custom HsH) and scalloping it
