24.75" scale Fenders and Squiers are still 'short scale' guitars. Other 24.75" scale guitars aren't.

Yell at http://www.shortscale.org/ if you feel it's inconsistent.



That makes no sense.

If 24.75 is considered "short scale" then that has to apply towards every guitar scale regardless of who makes it.

I have a 1994 CIJ '66 reissue Fender Jaguar in white. Pictures are in my profile. It's aged wonderfully and now is more creamy/beige than white. I didn't know this thread existed!

Jaguar users (specifically japanese jaguar users): What pickups do you have in your guitars? The stock pickups on my Jag aren't bad, but I think they could use an improvement; rolling off my volume knob doesn't do much, and they're a tad undefined with distortion. My amp's up pretty loud (channel volume at 6 or 7, Master at 3 - 4) so it's not settings. I was thinking of getting some Curtis Novak Jaguar pickups; good idea?

If most of these Fenders are short-scale, then Les Pauls are friggin short scale. Their necks are just like strats or maybe slightly shorter.

Since when were Les Pauls 24"?

I mean like the 25.75 ones or whatever. I just know that all the Fender "obscure" models I've played were longer than any Les Paul I've played.

edit: Ok, Les Pauls are 24.75 and those short Fenders are 24.75. Not much of a difference at all. Also the Jazzmaster is the same as a strat or tele.

Then try a Mustang, Jaguar, Duo Sonic, Jagstang, Toronado, Cyclone or Bronco, they're all shorter then standard Fender 25.5" scale.

A Strat is as much longer than a Les Paul as a Les Paul is longer than a Mustang.

If I played a Jaguar, I'd certainly try to.
