    A change in control positions is also going to happen, it's getting the 'Strat' arrangement with the pickup selector beneath the tone/volume knobs, not between them as in the current illustration.

    Concerning that model, they are not going to make it in a scale that would make it appealing.

    If one in three like my stuff, I'm good.

    Actually, if none in three like my stuff, I'm still good as long as I like it.

    I design guitars for myself first, if it happens a few others also like them, it's just frosting on the cake.


    A few get made, a few get sold, I make a buck. It's all good!

    ;)

    make it a 25" and be done with it...... best of both worlds...:lol:

    my Ibanez acoustic has a 25" scale.. much to my surprise?.. I'd always assumed it was 25.5 .. when I got my first Strat the neck felt at home from day one... I thought they were the same scale... until the day I measured it...o_O

    I never had any interest in short scale guitars...until my Godin Archtop. With thicker strings (11's for example) short scale makes for a great arrangement. If you plan on going with 9-10's, keep the longer scale.

    For next time, how about a baritone scale?

    Just thinking outside the box, putting it out there, just sayin', playing devil's advocate, just spitballin', etc.
