heya!

I've been playing guitar for about a year now, and when summer starts im gonna buy a new guitar. Since i have no experience with different guitars i though maybe you guys could help

I really want an Ibanez, they're so sexy and it's a guitar im ready to spend cash for.
I have small hands (which annoys me) so are there some models with thinner necks, or any special necks I can order to make a custom guitar that fits me?
standing up when playing is really hard for me, my fingers just aren't long enough. hell, I cant even play the intro riff from nightwish song Dark Chest of Wonders when i stand up, since my fingers are too short !

any tips appreciated

I dont wanna be known as the "sitting guitarist" >.<

Ibanez RG has the thinnest neck they make.
Buy a fixed bridge tho as floyd's are a pain.

Raise your strap then, it's not cool to play it near your knees.

A height you can comfortably play at well is the best.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ SD Alnico Pro II's
Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo

Also keep practicing both standing up and sitting down, it's just a matter of practicing.

Small hands? You might wanna try something with a more Fender/Squier shaped neck, tbh. My gf can't stretch across an Ibby, but Fender-shaped necks are comfortable.

It's a slim neck, but wide across, Fender style necks are the opposite, narrow, but thicker.

More guitar, less Ultimate-Guitar.
