My ideal electric guitar would have
-the scale length of a Les Paul
-the neck width of a Yamaha Pacifica
-tuners in a line
-prob 2 humbuckers
-vibrato arm

Does anything come close or would I have to pay a luthier to build it?

What do you mean vibrato arm? Like what type of bridge do you want? And their most likely is.

Er, a whammy bar? I thought 'vibrato arm' was the technical term, it sure ain't 'tremolo'... so yeah, like a Strat bridge or PRS Santana bridge

Yeah sorry misworded that question. But point was to find out what type of bridge you wanted which you obviously know. Oh yeah one more important part what is your budget? And your choice of woods would be?

Whammy bar, vibrato, tremolo...they're all terms used. It's physically vibrato but the "name" of the device is any of those.

I think the biggest problem is the scale length...almost anything with inline tuners is usually longer scaled. If it wasn't for the scale, you can get a Strat since theyre routed HSH and get a two-humbucker pickguard from Warmoth.

Prob mahogany body. In my mind's eye it'd look like a cross between a Taylor SC and a Tele... nice and compact.
Budget up to 2000USD

with that budget maybe look at carvin guitars or seek out a good local luthier then and get exactly what you want.

Agreed or even look at Warmoth although if you want a set neck or neck thru then look elsewhere.

A short scale double fat strat? I think fender may have made something like that at one point, but I don't think they do any more. I think they got rid of nearly all their short scale stuff.

Yeah, you could easily build this with a Warmoth 24 3/4 conversion neck. I doubt you're going to find it any other way.

Thanks ppl. Yeah the Warmoth site is interesting! I saw a LP thing with some mandolin strings across the body, WTH?!
I prefer how chords sound on a short scale.

The Schecter C-1 FR is all of those, except for the in-line tuners.

And maybe the neck profile.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!
