So I've got my head stuck on the idea of playing an electric guitarelele. But of course I'm not finding any such thing. I have found some "kids" electric guitars Like this (http://www.smallguitars.com/catalog/16-1-4_size_GL_Mini_Electric_Guitar) or this (http://cooldiscountinstruments.com/shop/Electric-Guitar-Child-Guitars/c105_113/p822/Child-1/4-Size-Black-Electric-Guitar-Set-Gig-Bag-And-More/product_info.html) but I'm worried that they just pricey toys. Anyone know about these instruments or something like them of some reasonable quality?

Epiphone makes a mini (PeeWee) Les Paul and an Explorer.

Played the Pee Wee in store, its size is approximately Tenor uke size.

Another cool one is the Fender Mini stratocaster. It's a bit bigger, approximately baritone uke size. But they're pretty cool~

Hi Kissing. Are you referring to the "Squier" mini-strat? They are cool looking but they are very cheap, cheesy instruments. Fender actually made a quality 3/4 strat a few years back. They were made in Mexico and had high quality electronics, solid bodies, string through body hard-tail bridges, and smooth fret work, all in all a very nice instrument compared to the Squire mini. They cost around $650. compared to $100. for the Squier but the price is well worth the difference. I have one and would never sell it.
