Every once in a while I’ll hear a guitarist refer to the “sweet spot” on a guitar neck. Kinda got me to thinking... how do you describe that? Is it even a thing? If so, how much does it vary from one neck to the next? How much could one expect two guitarists to agree on the sweet spot of a particular neck? The best I can tell: at the 12th fret the string has the most slack. When you play in that region the strings are a bit looser feeling and the sound is a bit warmer. If you move your fretting hand towards the nut, the tension stiffens a bit and the tone gets colder and more piano like. Sometimes you’ll see country guitarists picking right next to the saddles to maximize the effect. Where you decide to place either of your hands has a pretty large effect. It seems more like a personal preference to me than is implied when you call it a sweet spot. If I prefer a warmer sound and a looser action... maybe I oughta spend more time playing in the 10th position or so and experiment with moving my picking hand closer to the neck. I realize some necks might have a really good stretch of fretwork which might act as a sweet spot of sorts...or a compound radius might have a region where the radius fits your hand a little better. That is also a sweet spot of sorts, but not quite what I’m talking about. I’m thinking of a sweet spot in more of a general sense along a theoretical fretboard. Am I thinking way off here? Anyone have strong opinions on guitar neck sweet spots?
