No, true 24 fret necks are 25.5". Few manufacturers ever produced 24 fret necks with a Gibson 22 fret/24.75" scale.

Fenders however I believe have 25.5" scale, but only 22 frets.

I can't live without 24, it feels like I'm getting ripped off, but I like most of the 24.75"/22 fret guitar I've played, the neck is shorter and I somehow perceived that hand shifting a lot quicker.

Example:

Gibson: http://www.samedaymusic.com/product--GIBLPSTU

22 frets, 24 3/4 scale.

Ibanez RG:

http://www.samedaymusic.com/product--IBARG370DX

24 fret, 25.5" scale.
