Vultite Posted March 9, 2005 Report Share Posted March 9, 2005 (edited) I'm getting closer and closer to starting the build my guitar. I have read that necks are often 22 frets or less because the 24th fret is a great octave area for the pick up. With 24 frets you loose that placement, and what cost to sound? I gotta say, I want the 24 frets because I personally think its cool to have a two octave guitar. Do I use them often? Well no because I dont own a 24 fret guitar. I know there are many guitars out there that have pickups placed next to the 24th fret. But is there a real sound gain from having it placed at the octave? It must be valued because you still the majority of guitars being 21/22 frets. So what is the compromise, if any with sound? While I understand the issues of construction stability in the guitar, I'm more interested in the sound difference between the two options.
