The lazer was designed by Mark Erlewine, and first patented in 1987. It is a headless design with a cut-down body. At a total length of 31 inches, and weight of 5.5 pounds, it would make a good travel guitar. Scale length is 25.5 inches, 24 frets, with neck-though construction. Pickups are a single-coil at the neck and humbucker at the bridge. These are controlled by a volume pot, pickup selector and push-pull tone pot.

I will say that the 1 piece mahogony and matched electronics used in the Lazer delivers over-the-top sustain and wide ranging sonic dynamics a Strat can ever provide. The best thing about Mark Erlewine is his personal customer service. I've been in touch every now and then with him by email. He has always got back to me within a day or two with an answer to my question.
