Neck Heavy Guitars


Recommended Posts

I doubt my Guild S100c is technically any less "neck heavy" than any other SG type - or I s'pose you could say "body light" intead..."


But come to think about it, I made my own strap for it right after the purchase; it's saddle skirting that is quite thick and rough on the back. Never had a problem with neck diving.


Another factor nowadays is how I've noticed so many younger pickers wear their guitars somewhere around loincloth level where a lotta the pickers of my era and before tended to wear the guitars higher so their playing hand elbow would be pretty close to contact the guitar body - or, in the alternative, also "high," but carried with the neck at roughly a 60 degree angle stedda horizontal. That also shifts the weight quite a bit.
