Isn't it hard to reach the Upper register on the Wolfgang's?

I've been thinking about trying out one of these Wolfgangs, but they are only 22 frets and with the tele like upper half and the fact that the neck meets the body at about fret 16/17 isn't it hard to reach fret 22.

May be just my horrible technique---the fact that my thumb is always hanging over the top of the fretboard.

nah man, the reach is cool up there, maybe the 22nd fret is a little challenging but I find playing up until the 21st fret really easy on my stoptail.

The access isnt quite as good as an rg, but i dont know of any other guitars that really are quite that good. It will take a little getting used to. I had trouble at first doing the lead lick in goodbye to romance but now its smoother than on my rg's. Youve gotta remember before juding body styles, that once your playing adjust to it, most things you will find pros and cons with this guitar that the others you have played do not

I find all wolfies a ream to play in the top frets. Although I never really have any problems with heels and neck joints, so I may not be the best to ask!

I think that they are better because they are not fully single cuts if you get what I am saying? They cut in more that most guitars and don't feel restricted because of it.
