ok..so i had a plan to make a 24th fret on my stratocaster and after some handywork with a screwdriver twisting 2 screws i did it! the neck pickup coils now act like a 24th fret..i feel so proud of myself! i know this is lame so..laugh at me all you want..im off to celebrate!

That's absolutely ridiculous! You can't just raise a pickup and use it as a fret! It will affect the sound of the pup and it's probably not in the proper place anyway... so the pitch won't be prefect.

I dunno, it's not that bad. Having a properly intonated fret-pup is an achievement either way.

I dunno why everyone is giving you so much crap man, I and a lot of Tele players, regularly use my neck pickup as a 24th fret, it's in the perfect spot.

I never knew it could be done on a strat, not played many though.
#22
its a really cheap guitar and i only use the 24th fret when on bridge pup, but it does work lol.

to compensate for the pup being so high i lowered the middle pup so its like the neck pup used to be lol

jeez who stuck 24 strat frets up his ass?

btw doesnt it make like a pop when u use it? cause of the string hitting the polepiece?

Suck my balls son...

This thread is just lame....this "mod" will work on teles if you fret perfectly but not on strats. You will and are out of tune.
#24
^not on a fender/squier, at least. He mentioned that it's a really cheap guitar, and since a no-name strat knock-off isn't exactly to fender measurements, there's an off chance that it could be properly (or at least fairly close to) intonated.

But who knows?
If the TS is happy with his makeshift 24th fret, let him have it.

meh, when Michael talks about 24 frets up Kurt's ass
and Kurt tells Michael to suck his balls,
you're probably better off to just leave it,
than to through gasoline on the fire
with "tough guy" and "teddy bear" remarks.
