Until I bought a G6128T-GH Duo Jet almost one month ago, I had only played two electric guitars: one was my beloved DeArmond T-400, and the other was a cheap Squier guitar resembling a Stratocaster (apparently, it was some sort of hybrid model, not a Bullet, not a Horizon) that I played about twice. While I couldn't be more comfortable than when I'm playing the DeArmond, I found the Squier very uncomfortable. I'm talking mostly in terms of the left hand. The neck of the Squier felt thick and coarse (I don't know whether real Fender Stratocasters are the same). So I was somewhat afraid when I ordered the Duo Jet online without playing it beforehand (the place where I live has only got one music shop, and their range is very limited and doesn't include Gretsch instruments). I needn't have worried! The Gretsch feels exactly the same as the DeArmond, which is awesome, as I've been able to play it from the start (well, the little I could play anyway) without any sort of adjustment transition. I imagine this may have something to do with the fretboard radius, or with the shape and thickness of the neck, but it could be something else. Does anyone know what the Duo Jet and the DeArmond have in common about these, or what is so different between them and the Squier? How does the size of your hands affect what is or isn't comfortable for you? I'd like to know these things, just in the unlikely case that I ever decide to buy another guitar online (the DeArmond and the Duo Jet will certainly last me for years, especially if we take into account my lack of proficiency at playing!). Is it safe to assume that any Gretsch will feel as comfortable too, or does it depend on the model? Thanks!
