Hi, I believe yours is a 1/2 size. I have a couple - 1 pink but not Squier. I have been playing my 3/4 strat. for 3 years now! I scalloped the neck and dropped the tone pot. into the (now foil lined) cavity & fitted the vol. there instead. There's still a hum but the pups are a nice change and bite. I keep debating whether to shave off wood behind the low body horn for better top of neck access. It's not a Squier but I have one too and the HM Washburn They recommend heavier strings to compensate for length but I too use 009s - as usual. I used to gig with 24 fret Giffin strat with SD HBs and Kahler and would worry about tuning stability and neck length if a covers gig - so that's a worry.
I still haven't restrung it as I am reluctant to butcher a new set to fit. What is your stature? I am 6' with large hands.
Nice, very cool brother. I didn't know they had mini telecasters. I'm a big fan of telecasters.I bought one last year and think it's pretty fantastic as-is. It's not my #1 but I do play it and write with it frequently. I put 12s on and have it tuned down to either D or C depending on the day. Huge tone. I think the pickups have a good sound too. It did develop a bit of fret-sprout but I was able to file them. Only thing I'd like to change is the location of the jack. . . .
I have become a pretty big fan of the entry-level Squiers all around:

Yeah i noticed that, alot of adult players buy them for bonfire jams, Backstage warm ups, or as a travel guitar.I got my 8 year old grandson a ministrat. He has since lost interest, but I leave it in a stand and every once in a while feigns interest. Lately I have been picking him up after school. I need to get there like 45 minutes early for decent parking, so been taking it with me. I can sit behind the wheel comfortably with the window is open or switch seats. I mostly use it for scales or song writing. They are great starter guitars.

The strat I have is the Fiesta Red (or Dakota red) with a white pickguard. Very awesome mini collection!!!
