Start with an Indonesian Squier Mustang. Remove springs to disable troublesome vibrato tailpiece. Remove entire wired pickguard. ROUT body slightly
to allow mounting of a LOUD humbucker like DMZ X2N, IBZ V5 or GFS Power Rails about 2" north of the bridge. You now have a comfortable, LOUD,
short scale ROCK guitar! IT WORKS FOR ME!
