I've been playing the standard 25.5" scale, and i recently bought a 24.75" guitar without realizing it. I was very surprised by how much confidence and dexterity the shorter scale imparted to my playing, and now I'm thinking about switching to the 24.75" scale altogether.

The problem is, I'm so tired of seeing the Gibson/Epiphone body styles of LP, SG and blah. I want to find some other models/brands using strat-style bodies in this scale.

For example; the guitar I got is a "Peavey V-Style EXP" guitar. It is not V shaped really, the V-Style means "Vandenberg violin styled", and it is kinda a strat body. I even saw a G&L Ascari Tribute online which has vanished since, but that's another close one I'd be interested in.

So do you guys / girls know of some brands and models I could watch out for?

Thanks!

Give us some more information about your budget and what other specs you're looking for in a guitar. There are so many 24.75 scale guitars out there that a list of them would be impractical. Best to narrow it down with other parameters so you can get some decent suggestions.

Yeah, basically 25.5" and 24.75" scales account for @95% of the guitar market.

I'm looking for used or new guitars with a hardtail prefferred, but absolutely no Floyd Rose bridge.

My budget is around $500.

Thanks!

I'm not going to sit here and provide a list of 24.75" scale guitars -- I have no idea where that would even end. Get off your lazy butt and do a bit of research!

If you can save up for it and aren't in a hurry, Caparison Horuses are really nice, but pricey. You might luck out on a second hand one, but much higher than $500. 

Fender HM Strats are another option, except they are 25". Not much of a difference. 

Of course, those are floating trem guitars. You can always block of the trem though. 

You should also check out the PRS SE guitars. A lot of those are also 25" IIRC. 

You will find a lot more Les Paul style guitars with a 24.75" scale though. Some cool options are the ESP Eclipse models and the Epiphones. They'll fit your budget too.

Godin's discontinued SD series was a 24.75" scaled LP bodied HS Sor HSH guitar with a bolt-on neck, trem & 5-way switching- a real chimaera.

Fender Japan actually made a 24.75" strat for a while. Might be 25" now.
Tom Anderson is a great choice; ask for a Shorty.
USACG and Warmoth have both made shorter-scale conversion necks for Strats.

 jackson fusions were 24.75", not sure if they made any non trem ones though.

I asked information from people who may know the answer already. Not for you types who dont have answers and write negatively to others.

The reason i asked is of course because i couldnt find enough info on the net. Never asked anybody to do research for me.

You don't get it, do you? Forums are for asking questions.
#22
Forums are for asking questions, and several of the posters in here have answered many of them.

Your question, though, comes across somewhat as they have described. I just posted some 24.75" guitars I thought you might like.

But when I did a Google search for 24.75" Strats, I found the Strat-o-sonic, Japanese Strats, the Tom Anderson Shorty, custom Stratsclones, shorter-scale necks, etc.

Let's conclude the post; i don't think i will get further answers, so i will list what i know. It may just help others who may stumble on this post in the future. I did not list offers from well known brands which copy Gibson's well known LP, SG styles with 24.75 scale because it just makes no sense.

24.75 scale non-Gibson style guitars:

Peavey V-Type EXP regular or Limited edition (strat-style, discontinued)
G&L Ascari Tribute (strat-style, discontinued)
Ibanez J-Custom Model (strat-style,discontinued)
Austin AU792 (PRS style, discontinued)
Diamond Hailfire (Gibson Firebird style, but much cooler - still in production)
#27
Dude you had a tough time getting a useful answer because you asked a vague question with almost no criteria for an answer.

If you had done any real research you'd have found that strat style guitars in that scale aren t very common.

Honestly had this been in my section the thread would have been closed

Thanks for taking your time commenting, but come on! How difficult was it to see i was looking for strat style gibson scale guitars? It was such a simple question and people just don't get it...

I also repeatedly said that i did my research and decided to ask here to see if some people already had some answers. People are still telling me to do research...

If people do not have an answer, they should not bother bugging the poster. I'm unimpressed with the collective IQ here.

Did you expect something different from what your research came up with. If you look at your original post an title header you should see why you got this reaction. We shouldn't have to figure it out. Concise posts will get better results
#31
prs is really close. missed it by 1/4".



Edit: not to scale by the way, he's showing about 1.5" in his example, keep in mind, Don Adams was 5'9".

well you asked one of the stupidest questions of the year so far. you expected some kind of enlightenment or an alphabetized list of 24.75 guitars?

just for funzies, you do realize that a les paul isn't a 24.75 scale guitar right?

Yes, i know Gibson switched over to a 24 9/16 scale, which is a wee bit shorter. But when one gets into details, they are being accused of not being straight to the point. So yes, a 24.75 or a 24 9/16 are different but very close.

By all means, i'd love to see more additions to this, so i heartily agree if you say it's not my call

I stumble on some unkown brand PRS style guitars with PRS scale from time to time, and i know lots of people swear by them. Maybe i should give it a try... But i would prefer to ry the scale on a reasonably cheap guitar.

Maybe something like this one:
