  • Fat Guitarists

    Think BB King. Think Late-Era Jerry Garcia.

    Made worse when the Guitarist is also very tall as well.

    Other than going for a huge semi-hollow, do any other "big man" guitarists find they often look like "Fat man, little coat" when playing their electrics?

    Being 6'5 and 350, not exactly rock n' roll svelte. But man, sometimes when I look in the mirror, it's like I'm holding a kids toy.
    The Collection Thus Far:
    2010 PRS 25th Anniv. Mira (USA)
    2005 Limited Edition Antigua Stratocaster Reissue (CIJ)
    2001 Martin DC-15E (USA)

                  Fletcher Dragge from Pennywise is a large dude, so he has Ibanez build him custom guitars with larger than normal bodies so they don't look so freakishly small when he plays them.
