    Ok, I screwed up a bit....should only allow one scale choice, not two.

    I'm new at this 'poll' stuff.

    I feel I should refrain from voting because, as much as I love that design, I wouldn't be able to afford one any time soon :(.
    I have 24.75 covered by Gibsons, so I would go 25.5.

    To me it begs for 24.75.

    Are you now sorry you asked?

    It has your cool signature look, but that pickguard is particularly sweet.

    I have had and have many guitars.
    I still dont get length.
    I do know the old 60s mustangs are
    a hoot to play.

    That's fine, I voted for both, as I could happily live with either, just don't give me 20.75". A friend has the Rick John Lennon 325, and I don't get on with it at all. I'm happy to play my short scale musicmaster bass, ukulele bass and baritone uke, but any guitar under 24.75" always feels wrong to me.

    Beautiful guitar John. I'm a 24.75 kind of guy but the look of this one I think, needs 25.5.

    I prefer 24.75 with 9's properly stretched. Makes bending much easier and suits my style of playing.

    I don't worry much about the scale.

    Another cool guitar, John.

    Actually, fan frets add 15% coolness.

    That just looks like a 25.5er to me.

    I'm assuming It'll probably come with 10's.

    Low notes on 24.75 just dont sound like 25.5 does. On any guitar.

    Probably. Sometimes it will say on the manufacturer site in the FAQ section.

    Compromise - 25". I find that I like this scale much better than the other 2.
