Whilst it's called a Requinto, that's just a half size guitar isn't it?
I'm after one of the traditional Spanish or Mexican type ones with a scale length of 520-540mm.

Thanks for the knowledge. I didn't know a real Requinto was scaled 520-540.

The Cordoba Requinto scale is 580 mm.

I believe that Cordoba, at one time, made a Requinto with a 540 mm scale. I bought a Cordoba Requinto a few years ago. Cordoba no longer makes the model I bought, but I think it has a smaller scale than 580 mm. I'll post the scale length when I have a chance to measure it.

I found this requinto, with a 535 mm scale, at a UK website.

Unfortunately, I couldn't tell if this instrument is currently available. According to the same website, though, alto guitars also have a scale length of 535 mm (at least the Niibori alto guitar pictured on its website does). I don't know where one would get one of those either. You may be able to contact the website and ask.
