    Finding short guitars is easy. My kid needs a narrower neck too. Even her Hello Kitty Strat is too big.

    A McCarty or Custom 24 that is 80% of original size (20" scale) would be just the ticket. John Mann said he could machine a proper trem bridge to match the size.

    I'm going to email Seymour Duncan. If they have a way to make a set of buckers at 80%, I'm inclined to get a PS quote.

    For your child? For yourself?
    Absolutely! It kills me that my 5-year-old has to play another brand when he wants to "jam" along with me.

    My gut makes a full-size PRS look like a 3/4-sized guitar, so no. Don't want to deal with the "when did PRS start making ukeleles?" questions.

    My daughter started on a 3/4 acoustic when she was six, her first electric was a short scale Daisy Rock she got for her 7th birthday. Neck width was never a problem. She still has it in her room somewhere so I'll check the string spacing tomorrow. The Daisy Rock is a well built guitar.

    Oooh... short scale bass could be way cool!

    And while I played a Mustang for many years, I am not sure I would go back to a short scale 6 string.

    Reviving this one. Last weekend, my daughter (at 7 months old) worked out how to strum the strings instead of just grabbing them. I play for her every weekend when I see her so there's a strong chance she's going to pick up the axe.

    Now that we have the S2 series with much lower manufacturing costs, I'm putting it out there that this would make a great base for a 3/4 scale PRS (or maybe even a limited run).
