Hi
I hate my guitar neck, plaion and simple. Frets are tiny, theres not enough of them, the neck is slow to play and so on.
what i need to knowis
Can i put a 24 fret neckon a guitar which now has 22?
Will i be able to find a les paul style neck easily with XJ frets?
How much will it cost roughly?

Thanks in advance

What guitar have you got? If you have a glued neck, or a thru-neck, then there's not much chance.

ps, small fretted guitars are usually easier to play fast. then again, thats down to opinion, pure and simple.

You can't put a 24 fret neck on a 22 fret guitar, intonation will be messed up badly.
You could find a 22 fret neck with bigger frets and put it on, if it's the same type of neck.. you'll have to take measurements.

Couldnt the intonation be adjusted?
I know a luthier and i plan on getting him to install it.

for starters what scale length is your guitar? im thinking your going to have to get one made if your guitar isnt mass produced with a 24 fret neck. your intonation couldnt be adjusted over such a large distance. Think the distance between 22 and 24th frets moved on your bridge. There just isnt that much travel in a bridge. You could always get your luthier to move the bridge, that may just further complicate things. Do you really feel the two extra frets? is it worth the trouble/investment?

You could have it refretted rather than a new neck or you could save all your money in doing this and buy a guitar you like and meets your own specification, and that way you end up with 2 guitars.

a new neck would be cheaper than getting the 22 frets taken out, slots filled, new 24 slots filed/slotted and frets installed, thats really pointless. I think a new guitar, if you can afford it, is the way to go. or just live with 22 till its time for an upgrade?
