gw_guitars Posted August 23, 2005 Report Share Posted August 23, 2005 Hi, Finally in the process of fretting but what's haunting me is: should I scallop the upper frets? I've done a search but couldn't get a satisfying answer. Why scallop: 1: It looks cool 2: Steve Vai has it 3: Ritchie Blackmore has it 4: None of my other guitars have it 5: There must be a good reason for it 6: It looks extremely cool (did I mention this?) I want to scallop from the 14th fret up to the 24th What is the main reason for a scallop? I don't think it's something tonewise. I think it's all about playability.
