Re: Superstrats with the short neck scale
Out of wikipedia so may not be right but I think it is:
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.
