    The Squier Mini Strat is a solid choice as well. The quality of this guitar varies. When I ordered it several years ago around Thanksgiving, MF screwed up and mailed me two of them. One of them was near perfect. The other one has its neck mounted crooked and had fret sprout. I kept the good one and sent the other one back.

    Here's my demo of the mini:

    I'll do you one better....

    Back when Gibson had a custom shop on the west coast (88'-94') they built a few 1/2 size bursts. Other than having 1 pup and 2 knobs, they're pretty much identical to their full size counterparts.

    Of course, this is assuming you're filthy rich and would buy one for a 5 year old. ;)

    Otherwise, you can see one in "The Les Paul legacy" book (modern era 68'-09') page 127.
