I started the poll after reading the sweeping lesson comments, so in order to help me creating lessons vote for your guitar fretboard lenght. Thanks!

OOOoooops
I voted 24. THEN I counted...
I would recommend that you count first, vote after.
I have 22 frets.
I have less space to dance in than I thought I had.

I guess I could bend a step and a half up there but my Fender Strat has 21 frets. Regardless, whatever you post lesson-wise would be beneficial.

sadly i have 22
not that i need the 24, but i have a lot of trouble accesing the 18 - 22 frets
(could also be lack of skills on my side), i mean, i can reach the 22 fret and bend it, but it requires stretching and i can't use the last frets for (fast) solo's or even hold the tones very long

If i had a guitar with good accesability i wouldn't need the 24
I haven't heard about guitars with less than 22 frets, (except akkoustic) or hollowbodies, I must say its damn annoying to only have 12 frets on my akkoustic, but the higher sounds don't sound right anyway, its nylon

Just start playing the lick form the 15th fret, that would be C-minor, play the same patterns starting from C-minor (15th fret).

I am so sad! I only have 21 frets! That is one of the reasons I am trying to get a new guitar. I told myself that the next guitar I get has to be at least 22 frets. The guitar that I really like has 23 frets and you didn't put that as an option.

Huh, maybe I miscounted. The one I liked looked like it had 23 frets. I even counted live. It was the Firebird VII. I am sure you could find a 23 fret guitar... somewhere... in the universe. dry.gif
Man, I wish I had a 29 fret guitar.

MAB's Ritz Rocket has 29 frets but that is custom made.
24 frets: Jackson, Ibanez (RG, JEM models), Yamaha and many many more. (it's pointless to say the models because there are too much of them).

What guitar do you have? I know you have a parker but which kind? I can't find a parker guitar that looks like yours. Yours must be discontinued or something. The parker fly mojo is awesome.
