    This will be very interesting and a lot of fun. This is my 2nd Hanna. It is a Washburn made tele style guitar...The 2 will both get stripped, painted and prepped up right. The first one will have a Fender bridge with a 62 US bridge pickup as will the 2nd one..I will paint them different colors and the first will get a A3 neck pickup and haven't decided on the 2nd one yet. Check out the woodgrain on this 2nd one's neck...Fabulous....Stay tuned.

    That's a nice looking neck. I never considered one of these, but heck, why not? Super deal.

    Someone once told me that when those things were new the tone was nice and clean but as they get older they get a bit raunchy. :confused:

    They come with standard ceramic pickups, which get a bad rap, but I have found
    that with the right pots and cap they can be made to be alright. I just like to play
    around with cheap guitars. What is there to lose, and some turn out to be gems.

    I always wondered if these were decent guitars. It seems that they go really cheap most times. Does standard tele bridge fit?

    Looks like this one had some nice wood under all the unicorn dump:

    After some research, found a project page where a guy has used one of these to do a build for his daughter. According to his post, stock neck is "23 1/4 scale". He was swapping to a mini strat neck:

    "I almost decided to stay with the wasburn 23 1/4 scale neck but the mini-strat looks much better, even with the gaps at the heel, granddaughter won't notice. A little bit of a problem using the 22 3/4 mini strat neck with 20 frets as apposed to the washburn with 22 frets. The saddles had to be moved back about 1/2 inch but the beautiful thing about a tele style bridge is the wide range of saddle adjustment."

    I couldn't deal with one, 'cause I play too much high on the neck, and the upper frets are buried too far into the body.

    23 1/4 might be interesting! Although billed as a 3/4 size guitar, that scale length seems like it should be quite playable - for comparison:

    I believe that Fender Musicmaster, Duo Sonic, and Mustang guitars were actually offered in 22.5" and 24" scale lengths after the introduction of the Mustang in '65, and all Jaguars are 24". The 24" Mustangs, Duo Sonics, and Musicmasters far outsold the short scale ones.

    Yes, I think your information is spot on. I am sure that 23 1/4 is a "workable" scale, but probably not what most would find ideal.
