Wow! I love how high those arpeggios go!
My two concerns as of late - this I can see as a great studio guitar, but live? The longer the neck, the longer the truss rod, and when playing live, you can't control room temperature - so you can have that puppy configured perfect, but step up on stage and I wonder how high those strings are gonna end up off the fret board. I have a hard enough time with a 24 fretter's action raising on stage. And intonating that beast I bet takes a little more precision than your average guitar smile.gif

Love it tho! It's a beast in the hands of a player who can play it!

Uli Jon Roth used to play a custom made 30 fret guitar way back in the 1980s and 90s. His guitar was made by a guy called Andy DeMitriou who used to live in Brighton. And Roth used to use it live as well as in the studio cool.gif .

Wou!! those high sweeps sound killer!! I didn't know this player. He is really good! The guitar looks great and that wide cutaway seems very useful for shredding in the higher frets. Great design!!

2 things:

1. His playing is almost like a machine and fast...really liked it.
2. He made a point that the extra frets and cutout make it easier for him to play from the 22nd to 24th frets across high E string down to D string.

Not sure if it would be worth it, but he made it sound awesome!

Actually this extra range would be pretty useful for mimicking whammy pedal type effects, which would be pretty awesome.

Yeah, the Sky Guitar I believe he called it. He still plays it to this day, if we're thinking of the same one smile.gif

Yes that's the one. I've seen Uli play live with years ago and also had a chance to play one as I knew Andy many years ago.

That is awesome indeed, I would like to hear that simulation of neck pickup, I wonder how good it is.

Gary Kramer made all sorts of similar guitars, his turbulence model had 29 frets and two humbuckers, here's the link:
