Reccomendations for shorter scale neck thru

My favorite guitar in my arsenal currently is a Peavey V-type. I like its small C-neck profile, shorter scale (24.75), the FR bridge (though not the highest quality copy) and jumbo frets.

I'm looking for something similar feeling in a neckthru and ebony fb.

I like the looks of the RGT, but no ebony and 25.5 scale.

I like Carvins but seem to go nuts in the builder and end up with a $1700 build.

Who else makes a shorter scale, neckthru, FR super-strat?

Hey 1700 is STILL cheaper than my JB200C... Due to me being outside the US, I had to pay like an extra 400 USD for shipping, tarrifs etc. My JB200 came out to like 2300 USD

the best Gibson scale shredder I am aware of is the Jackson Fusion, but I don't think they came in neck through versions.

Here's another one... I knew Kramer had one, but couldn't think of the name!

That's the one the Peavey V-type (previously Vandenberg Signature) was modeled after, not neck-thru though. Buddy Blaze still makes them. And for probably much better quality than Chinese counterfitters you linked.

Oh... ok. I didn't know those were remakes. I just searched and linked it for the photo/specs, had no idea it was a Chinese knockoff. I had no idea it was so tough to find a guitar like you are looking for. I guess I never thought much about it.

I like the shorter scale too... got lucky and found a 1990 Charvel Predator in a local pawn shop for $120. Trem doesn't stay in tune very good though. So I wanted a solid bridge and bought an Ibanez SZ320, mahogany w/set-neck & 25.2" scale... Great guitar, but they never made them with a tremolo.
