Superstrats with the short neck scale

Hi everybody! I have a question: which modern serial superstrats has a neck scale, shorter than the standard 25,5?
I have in mind only Caparison Horus - with 628 mm.

Re: Superstrats with the short neck scale

PRS have 25 inch scales a lot of the time.

Don't know if you'd call CU24 a superstrat though... More of a Super Strat-Paul.

I've tried recently an old Jackson Fusion. It is simply incredible guitar in many aspects and I really love it's short scale. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find one. So I want to check the modern options.

Generally, I don't like much les paul shape and prefer classic superstrat forms. Of course, it is possible to order a short scale dinky or soloist from Jackson CS, but this is a really costly option.

Keep an eye out for a Fusion, they're worth the wait.

I've heard that Charvel 750 XL is also a great guitar, but never tried it.

I have a 550 xl which is great. I don' think that the 550 or 750 are short scale though.

Re: Superstrats with the short neck scale

Out of wikipedia so may not be right but I think it is:

Charvel 750XL
One of the finest and most deseriable import Charvel ever made was the 750XL. Being offered for only one production year (1989), they are extremely rare and sought after. The 750XL was constructed with an arched maple cap, mahogany body and a set neck (maple). It was offered with both a licensed Floyd and a fixed bridge, of which the latter is more rare. The neck was a 24.75" short scale length (Gibson style).

This guitar also belonged to one of the great music directors in Greece Senor Johnny Elliott, originally born in Chicago Illinois. The guitar was used by Shawn Lane throughout his career.

According to the Charvel catalogue:

750XL - Mahogany set neck construction with arched tops make the 750XL a sonic knockout. Capable of the traditional sustaining roars associated with set neck mahogany instruments, this guitar also offers today's brighter tones. Inverse Jackson inlays and bound rosewood fingerboard and matching headstock accent the 750XL's appearance.
Finish options: Snow White, Pearl Blue, Turquoise, Magenta, Platinum, Desert Crackle, Metallic Black. Finish options for flamed tops: Cherry Sunburst, Transparent Red, Transparent Amber, Transparent Purple.

List price: $1169.95 - 1395.00 (figured wood)

Neck: 24.750" Gibson short scale, maple set neck, 24 jumbo frets, bound rosewood compound radius fingerboard, inverse Mother of Pearl Jackson inlays (sharkfins).

Body: Mahogany body with maple arched top. Sources have suggested that the solid colours used Basswood or Alder.

Bridge: Either String-Thru JT-390 (more rare) or Tremolo: JT-590 non-recessed (Schaller), stamped "Jackson" or "Charvel".

Pickups: Twin Humbuckers: J-80C bridge / J-80C neck or J-80C bridge / J50B neck or J50C bridge / J50B neck.

Layout: 1 volume, 1 tone, Jackson 5-way super switch.

Hardware: Black.

Re: Superstrats with the short neck scale

I have a strong feeling that old fusion/750 XL would be the best option.

As I understand, now Jackson has only KV2T with the short scale or CS order.
Does anybody have experience with Caparison? I've never tried their guitars.
