    Short scale super strats?

    Are there any 24 3/4" scale floyd equipped super strats on the market today? I'm looking for Jackson / Charvel fusion style beast. Does anyone still make them?
    Lead, follow, or get the fuck out of the way!

    The Caparison Horus is other main one besides the Maverick. There will be a less-expensive C2 version of the Horus, too, but I don't when those are going to be available.

    Schecter also recently made the C-1 Custom FR, which is a short-scale model. I'm not sure they're in production anymore, but they're still readily available.

    You can also always build a Warmoth Warhead, or a Soloist with a conversion neck.

    Hey chris,
    I have a mint condition 1990 Charvel Fusion Custom that I may be selling . I bought it for my daughter, she's lost interest in music (it's all fucking dance now )
    so it's just sitting I may be interested in moving it. I've got to talk to her about it first but let me know if interested (has solosit case too)

    A couple of the Intonation screws are stripped , but besides that it's mint.
    It's all stock.

    The LTD Rob Arnold (don't know who Rob Arnold is, presumably he's in Metallica, or one of those heavy metal bands you guys have). The inlay is pretty atrocious, but it looks like a real shred machine, so I could probably get past that.
