    If that's the case then it would be attributed to either being neck heavy or body heavy. Those parabolic bodies, without hard edges, are just so comfortable that you don't even know its there. Nothing binds against your body or forearm or wrist and you get the feeling it's just your two hands and the neck. My friends Joe Satriani electric has this type of experience and it's a good design for a guitar body and I am surprised it wasn't around much earlier.

    I'll stick to a strat for comfort playing. Plus I'm not a fan of gold hardware. But it's an interesting guitar.

    Very nice! The white one looks like a piece of mint candy. Quite expensive candy, at that!

    If your looking for a round edged guitar the Danelectro Dead On 67 Hornet springs to my mind it aint as pretty but still does the same job.

    Jens Ritter makes a bass too. Lark Street had that guitar in stock - and now has this bass (kinda pricey for me). not sure how that would work sitting down!

    Phil Lesh plays a couple sweet Ritter basses. His "Eyes of Horus" bass had LED fret markers which glowed bright blue and is now in the Smithsonian I believe.
