    Hey folks,
    Looking to pick up a 25.5" scale guitar that isn't SS shaped, as I don't car for that body style.

    I typically like LP and explorer type bodies, but also get down with V and Rd styles as well.

    The Dunable RD style guitar looks cool, but I'm not willing to drop that much coin on a guitar that I don't know I'll use super often.

    Another must is a TOM bridge. I had 2 KM6's and while they were excellent guitars, I couldn't get along with the feel of the hipshot.

    Anyone know of any hidden gems out there?

    The Schecter E7 has a 26.5" scale?

    G&L ASAT's - some have TOM's and the one's that don't have a very comfy fixed bridge that does not feel like a Hipshot.

    Fender (consider the FMT tele for an LP/tele), G&L, Ibanez Talman, Charvel Model 4 (IIRC), Schecter PT, Reverend has a couple, LTD - there's a bunch of tele styles with various configurations. I believe LTD also has a 25.5 singlecut LP style.

    If you're a fan of V's, the RRXT24-7 is a solid guitar. Might want to swap the pups though, the stock Jackson ones are garbage. Also reverse headstock deliciousness:

    Balaguer Hyperion sounds like it would be right up your alley. It's RD style and has the vintage Gibson mojo going on with its looks, I know I'm considering one at some point myself.

    If you don’t get a Kelly you’re a dummy, and your mom sews socks that smell.

    I went to GC to check out a Charvel Desolation DS-1 with the original Seymour Duncan blackouts. When I got there, someone was already trying it out and eventually bought it. I regretted not going earlier. She (guitar) was beautiful and sounded clean and great. You may want to check them out. They are LP shaped.
