Re: Scalloping 21 - 24 Frets
Unless you have played on scalloped frets, you don't know what you are talking about. It is not cosmetic. The frets are so small that it is difficult to play and or bend at the end of the neck. Much easier to do with the scallops. There is a reason a lot of the greats use them. Vai, Herman Li, Kiko, Malmsteen, Billy Sheehan, etc. Not sure about scalloping the whole neck. That seems unneccesary but I have never played a fully scalloped neck. The Lions Claw also has a purpose. It allows for greater pull up on the trem bar than the normal pocket on RGs.
