I believe on the current necks he can do 24.75-25.5" scale lengths. Every fretboard is custom cut on a CNC so he can calculate whatever scale you want.

Yeah the man himself mentioned to me on the facebook aluminium axes group that he offers both Gibson and Fender scales. I'm primarily a Bass (VI) player but most of my guitar time is currently spent on a Kramer 350G and I'm digging the inbetweenness of the 25" scale; previously I spent most of my guitar time on a 24,75" scale Dean and it's amazing that the extra 0,25" on the Kramer makes me feel so much less cramped, even though the Dean has a faster neck profile. I had a similar experience when after playing my 30" Schecter Hellcat exclusively for a few months I received my 30,5" Nude Guitars custom and the extra 0,5" just felt so much better.

I have previously owned a 25,5" scale Ibanez but the neck profile and fret size on that thing just never worked for me, and have borrowed a Fender Strat from a neighbour for a while last year which was good, but before I commit to yet another 2k+ purchase, on an instrument that isn't really my main instrument, I should really spend some more time on a 25,5" neck (which I don't currently own...) so I know which scale is right for me.

Kevin can calculate any fretboard scale between those limits. Pretty sure he could do 25” if thats what you want.
