I saw Dave Mathews using this cool instrument, so I looked it up.

when I first found it, there were two short scale lengths offered, but they seem to have dropped one of them recently. Still, it is offered as a 6 or 12 string, and it is also available as a part of a doublenecked instrument, along with a standard length neck. Pretty cool, especially in the red sunburst. I'd love one of these, but my days of buying $4200 guitars is gone.
