Short But Sweet

Guitar Techniques - - Intro -

Per­haps you’re a player with smaller hands, a young­ster strug­gling to get to grips with the phys­i­cal­ity of full-size gui­tars, or maybe you’re a gui­tarist who loves the more com­pact feel of smaller mod­els like the Mus­tang and Jaguar?

Fender’s new Short Scale ad­di­tions to the Mod­ern Player se­ries should cater for all of th­ese needs and more. The Short Scale Stra­to­caster and Tele­caster both fea­ture 20-fret 610mm (24-inch) necks, bolted to down­sized alder bod­ies. The gui­tars also fea­ture Guild ‘Anti-Hum’ hum­buck­ing pick­ups in the Strat’s bridge and the Tele’s neck po­si­tions. There’s also a Short Scale Jazz Bass model with a 30-inch scale, too.
