That Shell Pink is a perfect match for your eyes, Tavo.
Thank you. That Korina one just hit the market recently.
Both those Rutters are a beautiful pair and that’s a great photo. Do you remember what pickups you had in the pink one?
I`m gonna vote for that. I had a an Gibson 67 reissue way back ago, and I always thought it was really a comfortable guitar playing seated, with the upper "fin" above, and the lower fin under my thigh. They are really alot more comfortable than most people think. (They also forces you to sit up in a correct classical position when you are playing it). Loved the weight, the bite, and playability on that one. Cheers!
My jet and EBMM Albert Lee are both very comfortable, in part due to their smaller sizes, but all my guitars are pretty comfy, even the dreadnought, though not as easy as my OM. I think the taller or larger one is, the wider range of comfortable.
Strat, for me about the most comfortable sitting or standing.
I've always found Strats to be very comfortable to play when sitting.
Same here! The bridge is fine for me too, but the banjo armrest digs into my forearm.
Strats are sooo ... almost comfortable for me. A strap helps a lot. I find the Jazzmaster forearm carve is more comfortable though.
On the Road Worn Strats, the simulated forearm wear is a bit rough (obviously done quickly with power tools), but the “wear” is of course where the old Strats typically wear: not in the middle of the carve, but right at the upper corner of the bevel, where it meets the body edge.
Ok, since my RW 60s had already been chewed up there by the factory, I smoothed and blended that spot a bit by hand with some fine sandpaper. I barely removed any wood at all, but it made all the difference. It now looks more like natural wear, and it is much more comfortable (to me) than a regular Strat shape.
Of the guitars I own I’d say the Strat is most comfortable to play sitting and the Sheraton is the least, but I can make any of them work.
For me, it's my Jazzmaster. With 2 relief cuts and perfect balance, it's the most comfortable I've played. I use a strap when seated. I've never tried one of those Ovations, but I'd like to. I guess they were just too radical to become popular...
Couch plucking my Jazzmaster yesterday confirms it's number 1 place on the list.
For me Ive found that my Les Pauls and Telecaster are very comfortable to play seated. Strat is comfortable too, but the contoured body tends to want to slide down my thigh too easily. I will say that my Gretsch 2420 is a very comfortable guitar to play seated as well.
All I can add is that a White Falcon doesn't work in a recliner...not your old man couch guitar.
I deliberately buy recliners which are a bit wider than normal, so I can play an archtop in comfort.
Other than my Martin, my Tele is the most comfortable to play sitting down. Subsequently, it's the guitar I play most.
