    There's something scary and not quite right about them, a bit like crawling babies who act and talk like adults.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, guys! I appreciate it!



    I hear what you're saying T5. I admit that the proportions take a bit of getting used to. They kind of remind me of dwarfs (sorry if this term isn't PC anymore)...almost full size features (width), but shortened up a lot.

    I would really love to build something like one of these. I have built a couple strat shaped guitars that are full scale. But I would really like to build a Little Les Paul like the one Eddie Van Halen uses in Little guitars. The ones pictured on this site are Jaw Dropping Beautiful. My question is I have no clue on the fret layout and respects scale. I would love to get a template of the fingerboard layout or helpful info on measurements.

    Hey Frank
    Not sure if "PC" is PC anymore...
    I'm giving this a go myself. I got an order for 2 so I've been CADing everything out and making sure I measure 50 times and cut once. I'm going to do 18" scale with 17 frets. My customer is deciding on the cap but I'll be starting by the end of next week if I can get the other 6 projects out of here.
    I do have a question though... I've seen the headstock veneer made of vulcan fibre and ebony. What is used on these and where do you find it?

    Sinn, what size is your mini? Without knowing that, it's hard to answer your case question.

    And welcome to the forum!

    I would be really grateful for any help!

    Those are amazing! Have a few Strat Jr's and a Precision, but I never knew there were and LP's. I'm guessing they are super rare and expensive???

    FLICKOFLASH & Pinefd,

    How can I obtain information concerning the pricing /purchase of one of these
    exotic Mini's ? These seem to be of the finest quality i've seen. I desire a playable instrument , and not a Epiphone Pee Wee or Zakk Wylde Mini Vee, or Maestro Gibson Roadie Mini Vee. Are all mini's suggested to tune up from standard E to G or A ?

    Thank your for your time,

    c00k

    Hey, c00k...if you're still around...email me, and I can help you figure out what's available, and see whether we can find you something that fits your needs.
