Mmmmm, Small Bodied Guitars

This is my latest "boat guitar." It's a Fender "Global Design" GDP 100 Parlor Guitar. It's a very cheap instrument, plywood, less than $200, but it sounds fine. Intonation's good, action is surprisingly good, and it looks great.
Small bodied guitars usually have good punch and this guitar is really snappy. It has a full 25.3" scale (that's Strat sized) and is very comfortable to play. It would probably sound better with upgraded saddle, nut, and bridge pins, GraphTech perhaps, but I'm in no hurry.
Sitting in the cockpit at sunset is exactly where this guitar belongs. It is small enough so that it doesn't get in the way and it hangs perfectly on a coat hook so it's ready to go whenever a little inspiration hits me.
