Small bodies electric guitars

Hi all.
thought I would throw this out there to see what thoughts any of you may have. Im looking around for an electric guitar with a slightly reduced body size. Ive come across the eggle new york. Levinson Blade Durango (original not current). But there seems to be few others. I want something quality that is just a bit smaller than the usual strat-esque size. I have other guitars that are full sized bodies. Just want something a bit smaller.

any ideas of what I could look at??

Ibanez S series have a fairly small, but still strat like body. Steinberger if you want to go crazy perhaps.

I've got a 1995 ESP Mirage - the body is probably exactly what you're looking for. Comfy neck too.

I've got an EBMM JP6. The body is smaller than an RG and it has a scoop where the right (picking hand) forearm rests. Incredibly comfortable. Awesome neck too. And tone.

Re: Small bodies electric guitars

the nuno series from washturd has a smaller body and neck as well.

the JP music mans do have a little smaller body, and the ibanez S-sereis is thin and a little smaller.

you could go with a gary kramer

Fender just came out with a Pawnshop Super Sonic,, smaller body, 2 slanted humbuckers, reverse headstock. 3 sparlke finishes. I think they look awesome.. not a typical strat body,, kind of looks like a Mosrite

I was thinking about the EBMM JP6 as well.But there might also be other options as stated above. EBMM Luke might be an option to look at to.

Play an EBMM JP6. You will buy one on the spot (if you're like me). Not only are they incredibly comfortable, the crunch lab/liquifire pickup combo is fantastic (if you like high output and loads of harmonics).

EBMM Axis or Luke for sure and they both sound and play fantastic.

Re: Small bodies electric guitars

The EBMM Axis have a very small body, smaller than an Ibanez S and a Caparison Horus
