Best six string multiscale production guitar?

Hello everyone, I know there are plenty of discerning guitarists on this board, so I’m hoping to get some opinions on the above topic. I have already tried a Strandberg Boden Prog model and found it impossible to adapt to, due to the small short side scale and .5” difference in the two scales (25/25.5), and perhaps more problematic, having the neutral/90 degree fret at the nut. I don’t think there are any other multi scale production instruments with the neutral fret at the nut.

I know there are production multiscale 6 strings from Ibanez, Charvel, Jackson and Strandberg. Have I forgot any manufacturers? I’m specifying production instruments as I don’t want to spend an arm and a leg or wait three months for the instrument. Anybody with experience playing any of the above brands?

Maybe you're meaning something different, but a zero fret is always right after the nut (on guitars that have a zero fret).
Yes, sorry, to be clear, I have heard the center fret in a multiscale, meaning the fret which is the center of the “fan” and 90 degrees to the fretboard called the zero fret. I guess the term neutral fret is more common and accurate. I’ll change the original post.

I've heard good things about them. No, sorry, I haven't played one. You asked about fanned fret guitars and remembered looking into Ormsby guitars at one point. I have 3 guitar project/overhauls to complete before I'm in the market for new guitar.;)
