Back in the 80's washburn used to make a 36 fret guitar but the fret spacing was so small you really could not fret that high up.

Nope not Jackson or Kramer but Washburn! they even made 36 fret guitars! the ones he is using on the vid seem to be custom though...

Yeah, Washburn EC-29 and EC-36. Those are pretty rare now. I played the 29 fretter way back in the late 80's I think it was. Played nice!

Re: 29 fret guitars..?? do they exsist??

are any of the scales beyond the 24 fret acurate or even correct, or is it just extended scale

Up to probably 27 or 29, after that I'm sure its just semi-tones like Uli Jon Roths sky guitars

Re: 29 fret guitars..?? do they exsist??

Because theres not enough space to really fret, he found it easier to remove them and settle with whole tone frets. So its just A B C D etc..no b or #, he has to settle on bending I suppose. At least I'm pretty sure thats how its laid out. Yeah, and its 7 string, and its all scalloped, and yeah, its about the coolest guitar ever. Theres only a few in the world, and he gave one to Yngwie if I remember correctly.
