24= small penis complex
the prs body was originally designed to be a 24 fret guitar though. So the modifications actually go the other way. squishing a perfectly good guitar. and then he just keeps squishing them.
I also don't understand hitting a pickup with your pick. why does that happen. why don't people just pick better.
There are a lot of intricacies. On the other hand, a string of a given scale length will have a series of fixed harmonic values along its length. That relationship never changes. Where you place the pickups underneath that string will affect the tone for the same reason. The analogy I like is that of windows in a house. If you have two windows on the same wall, the closer they are together, the more similar the view will be when looking out of them. So, if guitar pickups are the windows in this analogy, placing them farther apart will give you different tonal 'views', irrespective of other factors of the instrument's construction.
In my opinion the tonal difference of the neck pickups on 22-fret and 24-fret guitars is not subjective. I find it very noticeable, although there are other factors of guitar construction that could enhance or detract from the difference.
I own both 22-fret and 24-fret guitars and I use the 24-fret guitars more. However, I'd say the neck pickup tone on my 22-fret guitars is richer. 'Richer' in this context meaning fatter, more harmonic and full-bodied.
I enjoy owning both. Not just for the tonal differences but because they play differently and help me visualise the fretboard differently. Having some variety never hurts!
My warmup usually involves BOO “Follow the Signs” solo and they’re all over the 23rd and 24th fret so I gotta have em just to warmup.
I do. Just played with my RG1570 for the first time in a few weeks last night and wondered why the fretboard felt so huge despite having the same scale as my Fenders but that must be the fret count.
Tommy Emmanuel never needed more than 19.
I do, but I don't even own any right now
I am in this photo and I don't like it.
Sincerely "I prefer 24 frets and I try to compensate for my tiny peepee with them"
On models that have 22 and 24 fret options, I'd go with whichever looks better on that particular design.
I could make an argument for either neck pickup tone sounding better in different applications and I never even use the 22nd fret.
For 24.75" scale I don't like 24 frets because the pickups are too close together and the neck one is in the way for my picking motion. And those last frets are so annoyingly small anyway that I don't think I'd ever use them.
For 25.5" I prefer 24 frets unless I'm playing a Fender or something where that would screw with the neck pu tone.

I'm not good enough for it to make a difference. I have guitars with both
Only on a Les Paul type 6 strings guitars with 24.75 scale.
Never noticed any major difference in tone or playability tbh. I just prefer to have 24 frets because I've written a few solos that go all the way up there... My main guitar has 27 frets, but I've never used the top 3 to be completely honest, though having those kind of provides better access to 24.
My only issue is the mega long fretboard can push the neck pickup more into the body. I am a jazz guy and like in the trad position.
I think this is the answer, it’s about having the extra wiggle room.
Well, some will say that all guitar (and bass) players are solving that complex... Double bass players please, get some therapy!!
Personally I don't like visually when there's space between the last fret and the neck pickup that could be filled with frets (hello Gibson SG!!).
I also find quite strange/funny to read some "21-22 frets are enough" comments, on a 7 string forum.
Also, my strat sounding guitar is a RG760 with a traditional sounding strat pickup set (TonePros first, Warman pickups now, cheaper and better sounding IMO). Maybe I'm tone deaf but that neck pickup sounds really as the real thing
I’ve got guitars ranging from 0 to 24 frets, can’t say I prefer any of them, they are all just different.
24 fret or GTFO, 4 octaves is so much more efficient
