Am I crazy for wanting a guitar like this?

I'm looking for a guitar that is half Fender and half Gibson. Like a 335 crossed with a Strat.

Arch top Semi Hollow
25" scale length
Gibson Radius 12"
Bolt on Neck or Set Neck
Fender style Trem
Pickups are flexible, could be 3 singles like a strat or anything else.

Does such a beast exist?

I've got something like that - a Montara II from Michael Rowan Custom Guitars.

Gibson...

-Mahogany body (chambered) & set neck
-12" radius, Ebony fretboard, jumbo frets
-Carved flame Maple top with f hole

Fender...

-25.5" scale
-Double cutaway - kinda sorta like a Strat
-3 single coil, noiseless, Charlie Christian pickups (custom made by Kent Armstrong)
-5 way switch + custom 5 position rotary switch for various series/parallel wiring options

Sounds almost like you are describing a Gibson Johnny A. Although it is a hollow, the inside of the Johnny is engineered to make it feedback resistant like a semi.
