I am currently playing a Manouche Modele Jazz, purchased secondhand from Rob Brochey, which I dearly love. However, my small hands and stubby fingers are really challenged by the long scale. My previous instrument, a Dell'Arte Sweet Chorus (still for sale), being a short scale, was better suited to my hands, but I missed the extra fret access.
Who makes 14 fret short scale instruments? Shelley Park does have one such model. Anyone else?
