Re: short scale guitars....
I have 6 Rickenbacker 325's. They are small, but you get used to it. I have full scale deluxe 355 and it feels weird.
I also have an old Mustang and a Squier Super sonic. The Mustang is a wicked rock and roll machine. Very playable.
The super sonic feels tiny, but I have also owned jazzy's which are bigger guitars.
My favorite guitar is a flying v which feels huge after a round of "ticket to ride" on one of the ricks.
