    It comes down to simple physics, there's a couple of things to consider...or perhaps they're to busy playing us, to play themselves?

    Liona Boyd, Sharon Isbin and Muriel Anderson don't look uncomfortable when they play.
    They don't sound uncomfortable, either.

    I build Mustang bodies for the girls... it's a much better body size/shape for them to play,,:)

    My wife's stepmother has complained of the boobie squishing properties of a lot of guitars. She ended up buying a custom made one.

    Not mention that there have been guitars designed for women since the late nineties, the EBMM Annie Clark siggy model certainly isn't the first.

    Daisy Rock guitars were at least a full decade earlier than that.

    Not an uncommon thing to rehash old news with new headlines.
    Most of the Guardian's articles are clickbait anyway.

    In post #10's photo it would appear the upper bout is just 'bout' right on those guitars. I certainly dont fit my guitar that well.

    --------------

    Just hold it upside down 4 pkup guy.
    My tele has a special 'men's relief' contour cut in the lower bout.
    No one should have to put up with uncomfortable guitars:D

    These girls sit like they are sitting on the porcelain throne. I love the boob hanging over the guitar body though.

    Same reason my body is uncomfortable to females, perhaps.
    But it's news to me that a female finds a female form uncomfortable, in the first place.

    Well I was gonna say would you guys like to play a guitar that was inspired by a man's body? But then there's Rick Neilsen!
