Hi there guys, im lookin to buy another guitar to step up from my shitty silvertone strat but i want a guitar that has a shorter scale and a very thin neck like the silvertone has. if u wanna kno why im not keeping it, its cuz the tuners suck and the fretboard is ravaged from my abusive playing/use lol

Fender Mustangs have a short scale and relatvely thin necks. There may be some Ibanez models with short scales. I'd say go for a Fender Mustang or a Jaguar because they both have good sound, thin necks, and are short scale guitars. Only problem is that they have single coils so if that bothers you then too bad(although there is a version of the jaguar that has humbuckers). I prefer Mustangs but jaguars look cooler lol. But I like Mustang's sound better overall(they sound similar but mustang is better for heavier music than a jaguar with single coils is)

Ibanez has very thin necks. Try out their RG series.

Also...
Budget?
Amp?
Playing style?
Bands you want to emulate?

Ibanez RGT6EXFX -> Ibanez TS9 -> Korg Pitchblack -> Peavey 5150 II head -> Mesa Rectifier 2x12 cab

Les Pauls have pretty big necks though (comparitively).

i know you said what you wanted but when i went to get my first decent guitar i though i wanted a les paul but i went out to guitar center picked one up and it felt horrible

try going to the guitar center a few times playing a few different guitars and find what you like that works best i think

i have an epiphone casino - it has a very thin neck....but it's also a full hollow-body, and that might not be what you're looking for.

Yeah man, i can see from your name our a Nirvana fan much like myself and probably first heard of those guitars because of Kurt but the price for a Mustang or Jaguar is quite high. So if price is a critical factor, those guitars are probably not going to be able to work out for you.

thanks for the help guys! and btw i am also a huge led zeppelin and nirvana fan, and i kinda wanna stay clear of ibanez and prs. i already have an Epi Les Paul with a bigsby and p 94 pup (awesome btw) but i need a second guitar that feels more like my silvertone...
a tele always felt right to me as a second guitar, but do u think the stang is thinner and lighter?

This.

18.5mm at the 1st fret to 18.5mm at the 12th is what I've heard.

Unless you have a serious vendetta against Ibanez, the ORMs are short scale and have really thin necks too.

What are all the short scale models that Ibanez and Washburn make?

Get a sixties style SG. Nice thin, fast neck, short scale, light enough for a long gig and even if you can't get a Gibson, the copies are mostly pretty good. Pickup swapping is easy, too.

Ibanez ORM-1.

One of the slimmest necks around, but doesn't feel funny like a Wizard, short scale/24" and they're pretty well built. I wanna buy a second one to mod.

Ibanez has the Mikro or whatever, and technically 24.75" is a short scale. :/

Those are way shorter than 24.75" though. I always liked Washburn and Ibanez but they don´t have the short scale stuff that I like - which is annoying.

i do love gibson's sound, maybe i'll look into a 60's sg. From what i understand its the 50's necks to stay away from
