A guitar shouldn't be anywhere near your ribs.
Congratulations on the weight loss. I think you should get yourself a new Stratocaster as both a reward and as a medical necessity.
Sand in a contour? Get a new guitar body with same to fit your new human body?So last march I went on the keto diet and went from 205 pounds (5'7" height) to a very slim 147 pounds. I've been quite overweight most of my adult life and never had issues with tele comfort. Now the body seems to cause a bit of pain against my ribs. Its not a huge problem but I have to be more mindful of where the body rests now. I've never liked how the contoured tele bodies looked so hope I don't have to go there. I could hang it a little lower but I'm sure it won't be comfortable for the angle of my hands that way. Anyone have any other suggestions how to make this more comfortable?
Mine doesn’t have a tummy cut or an arm bevel, but sometimes I wish it did, or I know if I got one that did have those things it’d immediately become my #1.
