    I'm 164cm tall. Weight is 48.1 kg. Age is 22 years.
    I have Les paul guitar. Problem is guitar neck thickness and body weight.
    I like my les paul sound. I realized that fender and squier makes great thin guitars.

    I play punk, crossover(mix of metal and punk), post, rock, blues, reggae, rocksteady, ska
    I like heavy distorion and reverb. Jaguar, tele or mustang? I don't like strat so much.
    I'm looking best fast play guitar. Thin neck, not so thick and big body, two pickups also few knobs as tele have.
    Blacktop telecaster sound great. Any recommendations ?

    Ibanez Mikro

    Fender Duosonic, Jaguar or Mustang

    You can also find short scale Strat and Tele copies around if you look.

    EDIT: SG is good. Epiphone makes a SG Express that's a shorter scale length that you might want to look at.

    I'd go with the others recommending an SG. You like the sound of a LP. An SG will get you in that same ballpark. Remember, the SG took the place of the LP when customers complained about the LP being too heavy and not having enough neck access to the higher frets.

    Actually at 48.Kg, he's either a very short very dense person or a 200' long piece of spaghetti.
