    John Patitucci's signature bass is an example, 26 frets.
    i've have seen a 7 stringer with 36 frets, but i cant remember the name of it.

    i think the zon hyperbass (ala michael manring) has a 3 octave neck. i think thats equivelant to 36 frets (although its fretless). maybe there is a fretted version? :confused:

    My Bee has 29 frets and my F Bass BNF6 (if it had frets) would be 28 frets.

    There are several other manufacturers that make 28+ fret basses.
     
  6. My uncles custom curbow has 3 octaves on it. That thing is sweet! It's got MAJOR THUMP BRUTHA!
     
  7. My Curbow XT-33 would have had 33 frets if it had frets at all. My Nordstrand SC5 has 28 frets.

    I suppose there will always be at least one person to crack the "it's a runway" joke where there are pictures of ERBs. :rollno:

    They're so whimsical that they are beautiful! That satin black finish really adds to the sexyness, aswell.

    I makes me happy that in a thread about basses with 24 or more frets there are at least 2 pictures of basses without any frets.

    :) I love this place!
