My first guitar was a nice acoustic, but it was too nice to take out of the house in the winter or really hot days to take lessons. At least that was how I felt about it, so I purchased a much cheaper guitar for that purpose. They were from the same brand, but not the same specs. The cheaper one had a shorter scale and thinner string spacing. I ended up playing that cheaper instrument far more than my nice one until the day came that I really couldn't play the wider string spacing without struggling. I became a much better player on the shorter scale thinner spaced instrument. To this day, I have added more acoustics based on that cheap guitar I started out with and it has become my favorite specs. So, it got me thinking. Do we really buy guitars that fit us or do we really conform our playing to the instrument? Was it simply a matter of training or was I really a better fit for the thinner spacing from the start due to finger length or something?
