Get a Cobainstang dude. The TOM could be more complimentary to your playing style since the strings are spaced wider, if not you can convert it for a standard mustang bridge very easily. I've never had tuning issues with mine, but I don't use the vibrato.

Are the necks on each of those guitars similar? I would like a modern short scale and I'm inclined to go for the Fender Super Sonic but I'd consider the various Mustangs that are currently available too.

Don't forget the MIJ HH Jaguars with the stop tail / tuneomatic. They can be had all day long for $550ish and sound like they are up your alley.

I just got the MIJ Jag HH and I really love it. I don't have small hands, but the neck is much more easy to manage for me than the Telecaster I've got. I haven't noticed a massive difference due to the smaller radius and frets either, it just feels really smooth to me. I picked up the one I've got on Craigslist for $300, partially because it's been modded for P-90s and is also a little beat up, but it's a fantastic instrument that checks a lot of your boxes and goes for around $500 usually. The trouble is finding one since they're discontinued, but if you can I'd give it a shot.

Me personally, if you don't think you would use a vibrato arm much I'd say a good starting point would be the blacktop jag. Yeah it's MIM, but dew it bro.
