I'm not talking about solving anger and disappointment with violence. I'm talking about solving anger and disappointment with music. I have two questions that I've wondered many moons: Question Juan: Is there a methodical way to measure your hand in many ways and determine the correct neck type, shape, profile, width, height, radius etc for ergonomity? Seems like the only thing we have is "pick up a guitar, play it for a bit, see if the feel is right". There is some fun and joy in the journey of doing this, but it would be really neat if you could just know what the 'right' fit would be, no? Question Too: Why don't guitars come with different neck profiles? You know, like how you can buy regular jeans, big n tall jeans, or big n short jeans. Let's say you find that perfect Telecaster or Ibanez AX-series, but the neck just doesn't work? What if you could select one with a chunkier neck if that's what you like, or the same exact guitar with something thinner, or with a different fret size, etc? I realize that this means some different manufacturing setups, but how different, really? If they have to machine a neck and bolt it onto a guitar, why not machine a few different ones? Most guitar models come in a bazillion color, bridge, pickup, etc options, why not neck? I think Rickenbackers are really rad, but I cannot stand the necks on them. They're ridiculously thin and I need more meat to grab with my big stupid hands. Meanwhile, once I played some plasticy-looking Apple-inspired looking Yamaha something electric and it had *the* most comfortable neck I've ever held. The rest of the guitar was fairly 'meh', or so it seemed at the time. I've known a few guys and a few ladies who were limited to what guitars they could play because they have small hands. Most 3/4-sized guitars are aimed at children and there's a quality cap there. So maybe a decent guitar with a thinner/narrower neck option would be great for them. Great Scotts!
