Well a scalloped neck kind of curves in at the top of the fretboard rather than being completly flat at fingerboard.Marcus Lavendell use's a scalloped fretboard along with Malmsteen.They are mainly good to give you a better grip on the strings especially when bending,but have there draw backs as well as everything else does. smile.gif Check out some info on these necks you may find you would like one.

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

I wonder how it is to play on those scalloped necks. Would have been fun to try.

My Jem is scalloped on the last 4 frets - helps you to get a grip on the higher string, somehow makes it seem more positive ...
