that's the same idea with scalloped fretboards but to a larger extent. i don't like either because i like to dig in and press hard. hence my slow, crappy playing.

Do you mean you want a guitar that you can shred on, or do you mean you want a guitar with the typical shredder setup? (you know, 24 frets, floyd rose, etc). If it's the latter, check out some Ibanez neck-thru models as well as Jackson and ESP. Those ones always jump out b/c they are quite popular, but there are plenty of good guitars with that setup.
If it was the former...you can shred on any guitar!! If you can't, it's purely user error.

Well, everything in our music is based ultimately on the chromatic scale, since the chromatic scale includes all the notes in our system of music (some other systems would be something like with having "quarter steps" - so there would be a new note between E and F in that system).
There are a lot of different patterns you'll find, and all those patterns are meant to be applied to the chromatic scale. I have a book with all the patterns for scales I've ever heard of (and tons I haven't!) -- I can give you some interesting scales that way. (I really don't use any unusual scales though.)

The chromatic scale is just playing every note on the guitar (in a row).
So yea, except on 3rd string the 4th fret is 0 2nd string ^^. But..yeah

Yes, compared to a regular guitar. If you do want a Floyd Rose, there are ways of alleviating some of the problems and making it work for you, it just depends on what you want to do. If you don't want to raise the pitch of notes, it's not that bad. I really wouldn't recommend a Floyd on your main guitar, but if you have a good one already, go for it.

as for junbo frets, i probally wouldnt know the differance between them and regular ones unless someone told me. i think speed has more to do with neck/fretboard desighn
I used to shred, now I draw.
