I know there are plenty of short scale superstrats, but I'm talking about more classic guitars; Flying V's and Explorers etc.
I don't get why the 25.5"+ market gets the choice most of the time, but the LP/Flying V/Explorer market are firmly established in TOM country.
I mean, if I were to speculate, I'd suggest it was down to the fact that the boom of the locking trem during the 80's was largely cultivated by pioneers using exclusively 25.5" superstrats... but things have moved on by now, you'd think Gibson etc would offer it as a choice more often?
I'm basically just having a bit of a moan, as I'd absolutely kill for a classic short scale flying V or something like that with a top-mount Floyd. They have/had one model which is now discontinued, and isn't a particularly interesting colour or lay-out. Same goes for the Explorer version.
What is actually out there?
The older ESP Mavericks were short scale - i picked one up a couple of years ago for $350 CAD. I haven't really seen much that is pointy, short scale and has a floyd though
