I should have said pained because I just sold it. I loved everything about this guitar except the size. When I test drove it at the store I was blown away with the tone and playability. What I didn’t realize at the time that playing it more than 1/2 hour at a time it would cause pain in my right shoulder. I tried about every position including the classical position. It didn’t matter the size just killed my shoulder. I wish there was such a thing as a parlor size guitar with the sound of a dreadnaught. Has anyone else had problems with dreads and aching shoulders?
