    Does such a beast exist? I can't do 25.5" scale and hate bolt ons.

    Well, it won't really be a Strat anymore...

    You'd have to have one built custom probably. Short-scale necks exist (Warmoth and maybe USACG) but are bolt-on.

    Probably your only choice - sorry, I have no idea where to start looking.

    Well you know, alder body, maple neck & fingerboard, single coil pickups. The drop in scale length is similar to tension reduction with Strat players going to Eb.

    Peavey Vandenberg custom is a neck-through, 24 3/4" scale, with two humbuckers though. There's a coil split that gives it pretty good single coil tones, but it's certainly not going to be mistaken for a strat anytime soon.

    It's called the strat-o-sonic. But, it's bolt on.

    Hamer made some Superstrat like thingies in the 80ties that had Gibson scale and set neck.

    Actually GIbson did, too. You see them pop up on Ebay on a regular basis.

    Yeah they did, but they had 24 frets and Floyds, so they were more setneck/shortscale shredders than setneck/shortscale strats.
