    Anyone who knows about any 24 fretted "jazz bass" styled basses?

    Ohhh... stupid me.

    I obviously should have added that I'm looking for a bass to attach my Roland V Bass GK2B pup on, and the "classic" jazzbass body style leaves that nice space.
    (Fender Jazz 24 got to much knobs in that area :-(

    But... I want to detune to DGCF and still reach that high E tone.That's where the 24 frets come in handy.
     
  5. Eugen Classic series basses are wonderful!

    nah, in a traditional jazz it is already hard to reach the 21st fret, the 24th would be totally useless.

    Actually, so does my five-string Ibanez Soundgear. The GK-3B works fine if you shift it over -- the split pickup isn't string dependent, it just needs a single string (ie frequency range doesn't matter). I've had no more tracking issues with the pickup moved over one string than intended as I had in the first place. I use a GR-20, so the tracking should matter more on mine. I don't think it's an issue.

    Now I've checked out that "replacement 24 fret neck" a bit and I think that 24th fret are unreachable on a standard jazz body.

    Any other suggestions?
