hello,

I'm new to the bass and have 2 dumb questions:

1) I notice many basses with various numbers of frets on them. some have 20, others 21. I've even seen some 22 and 24 fret basses. do more frets give you "more notes" to play on the low-end? (or more on the high-end?)

2) are there any advantages/disadvantages to bigger fretwire on basses, such as jumbo or extra jumbo? would bigger fretsize make it harder to fret notes?

thanks!
