Short But Sweet
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.
