I don't know whether or not it's a gross generalisation to say that the Japanese have an obsession with miniaturisation, but since the advent of Fender Japan there have been several "mini" versions of popular Fender guitars, a couple of which we have already looked at on this blog (e.g. MST-32 mini Strat).
This 1992/3 MIJ Fender Mini Telecaster MTL-32 has an alder body and maple neck, weighs aproximately 2.15 kg / 7.06 lb, and has a scale length of 470 mm / 18.5" (which puts it into the same scale territory as a tenor ukulele). Note that is uses the same hardware as on a regular size Tele which gives it a strangely stunted appearance.
Currently listed on eBay with a starting bif of $599.99.
