Re: 24.75 Scale guitars
Ok own-up time to start with, I'm a bass player, but dabble on guitar occasionally. So no surprise I like the feel of 25.5, however my (current) fav pick-up is a P90, so I've persevered with 24.75 and now get on ok with them (I'm happy chunking out a rhythm, with occasional note runs, so no high end fast finger stuff for me to worry about).
Current fav guitar is an cheep Les Paul Junior copy (double cut single P90, old enough to be Korean made I think), great rock'n'roll sound and feels very nice when I'm playing it.
One of those ironic things, that probably the cheapest guitar I own is my fav - on the surface it looks ok, but take off the pick-guard and it looks like firewood - however I've let my ears and hands decide and I like it :-)
