I just got a great guitar that works for small hands.
It's a 1972 Gibson SG Special. It's great for me not because of scale length, but because the strings are closer together than a Stratocaster standard's are. That is, the width of the nut is smaller.
It takes some getting used to because my fingers are used to going to other positions on the stratocaster--- it's kind like if a piano player was playing a new kind of keyboard where the actual keys were THINNER. At first, your fingers would go to the wrong place because that's where you expect the keys to be.
The good thing about this, is that it seems to have increased my speed. The bad thing is when I switch back to my Strat, my fingers are all confused again.
Anyway, here's a stock photo. It's a sweet, sweet guitar. The one I bought sounds absolutely spectacular!
It's the guitar Pete Townshend played.
