Do you realize how short the lower cutaway would have to be to even be able to reach the 24th fret comfortably? I wouldn't even look like a Precision.
And bacon is delicious.
I said Blasphemy, not because I particularly care about "Tradition" but because, like adamrobertt said, it's "Unnecessary". If you have a group where you can tastefully use 24 frets, you probably won't play a P.....
Not to say it couldn't be done, you just wouldn't sell very many.
22 at most tbh, I would look elsewhere if I wanted a 24 fretter.
Yeah I'm a traditionalist. Heck I could get by with 15 to be honest... But 20 is what's standard, so...
This one here is genious.
i think it should be 24 frets. imho, the only reason that any bass should be less than 24 frets, is for people who like to slap on shorter fingerboards- though it can be done, P-basses aren't typically slappers.
Hmm - now I have to wonder if my P bass has 22 or 24 frets. Hmmm. My Jazz has 22 frets, and I have another Fender bass with 24...
Honestly, I *rarely* use the 24th fret on a bass - and when I do, I just use it "in theory". When playing a song in the key of G, I like to sometimes fret the 12th fret D & G strings, but then play the harmonics at the 24th fret (right hand thumb over 24th fret, pluck with fingers). I don't actually need the bass to have 24 frets to do that, as long as I know where the 24th fret would be.
So that said, I vote "no" for 24 frets on a P bass!
If you're going with a P, GENERALLY you are going for a traditional sound. Not that a 24 fret bass couldn't be traditional, but I think you'd be looking at something else for that requirement.
Had one. It was awesome.
I don't see a need for 24 frets, but whatever floats your boat.
Adding four notes to the higher end of a low-end instrument doesn't really interest me, but if I saw a cool 24-fret that I liked and had the money, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.
God, I love me some bacon. It goes with EVERYTHING!
I know, bacon is gross. Carrots ftw.
There ain't no money above the 5th fret.
Thats just not true.
I keep a rolled up dollar bill at the 24th, under the strings, as a mute.......
I'd love a 24 fret P with good upper-register access. It was a tough call, though. Bacon is magnificent.
24 frets on a P should be mandatory. It needs it much more than a Jazz.
My bass is pretty much a P with 24 frets.
