A 24 fret guitar has 12 octaves?

No, you're wrong. A 24-fret, 6-string guitar in Standard Tuning has a range of 4 octaves.

So, open low E string -> 2nd fret D string -> open high E string -> 12th fret high E string -> 24th fret high E string.

please explain, but first do you understand my reasoning?

A 24 fret guitar as a 4 octave range...open low E to 12th fret low E/7th fret A to 9th fret G/14th fret D to 12th fret high E/17th fret B to 24th fret high E.

If you mean "how many single octave intervals appear on a 24 fret guitar (excluding those on the same string" then I guess the answer is....a lot!

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

No that's 2 octaves. The next string starts at the 5th fret, not 24th.

2...

...one string spans 2 octaves, but that doesn't mean there's 6 octaves on the guitar - if you're going down that route why not count every single individual octave?

"There's 514 octaves on a 24 fret guitar."

That's actually a complete guess, if anyone can be bothered to work it out I'd be intrigued to know the answer...just using single strings there's 72 already octaves.
