Gretsch Garage Sale

I never learn

Well I had to try this new in box 2012 Japanese 57SS short scale 22.5" Strat. Very few in US but I snagged one. Bladebucker is original on these. Only 6 pounds.

I keep telling myself in a mind over matter way that I can hack the harrow 1- 9/16" neck @ nut width but I realize again 1 10/16th is where I start like the Mexi 22.5s have. And I no longer used to or like the 7.5 radius and lo-frets which was ok last century when I was an Intense Vintage Fender Dude, -- which all ended nearly 20 years ago.

So it's outta here-- $575 plus shipping.

I share a third of your neck requirements. I need the wider neck too as most around here know but I want my frets as low as possible to avoid fretted strings going out of tune - sharp - when depressed with the open strings being played. A lot of fingerstyle players have the same concerns. As for scale length, I generally prefer the 24.6" over the 25.5" but anything shorter I haven't played or find a need for.

Good luck with the sale.

Yes, taller frets can cause fretted notes to go a bit sharp if you press down hard. I'm hopeless.. 24" is now long scale for me

I've got to tell you DC, I laughed when I saw the thread title. Because I'm in the same boat for very similar concerns, but your title just sums it up best. Good luck on the sale.
