  • They need to make bigger guitars

    Anything smaller than 335/hollowbody or acoustic looks like a toy when I hold it.

          I hurt myself with a Les Paul - not because of the weight but because of the small size. I played it too much sitting down and ended up with tendonitis because of what I was doing to my shoulders. I use the LP for gigs and recording but I've switched to bigger guitars for daily practice and long rehearsals.

            I'm pretty much bigger than any man I have met. Not only do I have to duck under doorways but turn my body sideways because my shoulders are so wide. Regular dreadnought acoustics look like ukulele's in my hands. Such is life...
            One MIA Fender Strat, one Gibson Les Paul, one Martin Acoustic, what more do you need?

                To further put some perspective on just how small guitars are for me, I'll tell you a short story...

                Last year, I was fascinated with the violin, so, I went to our local music store who specialize in classical string instruments. Bending and turning to get into the store, I was met by a salesperson with a friendly but somewhat timid response, not so unusual being a giant. Regardless, I began to inquire about violins and he immediately said go for the full size one. For some reason, his boss called him over so he directed me over to the string section. I picked up a few but couldn't get on with the endpin on the bottom, it kept poking me in the chin. However, I found one whose endpin was retractable and it just felt right. By this time the salesperson returned from being with his boss and burst into laughter. I asked, "What's so funny?" He said, "That's a perfect fit for you, but it's a cello".

                      Buckethead's Les Paul model might work for you. Makes me look like a little kid though (I'm 5'6").
