Its hard to tell exactly what you mean by fret positions. Typically there are 22 or 24 frets on a guitar. A common guitar with 6 strings will have, totally over 22 frets, 132 fret positions. 144 total fret positions on a guitar with 24 frets. That is not counting open positions (strings not fretted).

It all depends on what guitar you own and the size of a guitar. Fret positions can be invented and the amount is always changing. It also depends on the song you are trying to play.
