Adding a 22nd Fret to a 21 Fret Strat, Getting to "D" on the high E

This is a trick we used to do a-lot more back in the days before the 22 fret strat became more the norm.
The hard part is matching the finish on a maple neck.  On a rosewood fingerboard you can hide it even better.

Here is a basic 21 fret vintage style Strat neck.
Removing the 21st fret and adding the wood for the extra fret.

Here is the finished 22nd fret addition.
