Hey @Shambho - I would suggest that you make your own neck from scratch...it is easier than you might think! You can order a neck blank and fretboard from us and follow the instructions on my online course

Measure twice, cut once...

Mark, I have considered building a 3/4 size electric but the one thing I’m not sure of is finding a truss rod small enough. Is it easy to modify a normal one or can you buy them made to fit? Oh, perhaps a smaller bridge as well. 

Here is an example (I have one of these that I want to copy):

Carpe Diem and build your dreams

If you make a working drawing in just the same way using the Design Course then you can work out and measure roughly how long it needs to be.

You can indeed buy truss rods virtually any length - I can get you one by special order if you let us know...

It is not so easy to adjust the length of a pre-made one (at least not ours as they are two way adjustable and involves left hand thread...) - but you could potentially make your own 'one way adjustable'.

As for the Bridge - It is usually just a standard bridge...I checked the linked and the nut on that guitar is 43mm. 22.2" scale length.... so that is all you need to know...Don't forget that the low E will be tuned to A (more than likely). Any more Q's just ask....Can't wait to hear it!
