This guy is insane! He teaches down the road from my house. Give it a shot, you never know if he might do it.

Just got around to cathing the video linked from that site on Youtube. Is it me or does it look like that's a scalloped neck?

It's definitely a scalloped neck. I was at the music store where he teaches and I saw it there. It's strange though. I've never played one and I don't quite understand how the scalloped neck works. His seems to be extreme, but I don't really have a reference point.

I once tried out a guitar with a scalloped neck and I could not manage... every note I played got detuned because I played them too hard on my left hand. You really have to train a very light touch or otherwise your bending the string....

You guys live in great places! You can have lessons from great players like Rusty, Matthew - i wish i could have lessons from them!

I never tried scalloped neck but after seeing Rusty i think it's totally UNIMPORTANT if you have it scalloped or not! smile.gif

I'm pasting a link to a page that has some closeup pics of a scalloped neck.(another interesing site, BTW, for DIY guitar projects). On an Ibanez JEM guitar, the higher frets are scalloped. On some guitars, aparently, they do the whole neck that way.

Pavel,

Doesn't the Jem have the last 4-5 frets scalloped?

For those who've tried both, how different would you say that a scalloped neck is from having jumbo frets? Regarding playing and how hard you have to press down.

Do you find that it makes a difference? I have a PRS with 24 frets but they are all "normal"...
