how high is too high for guitar straps (bearing in mind height can help technical virtuosity while low slung can get teh chicks)?

It all depends on the style.

  • Laney VC15
  • Electro Harmonix HOG

  • Blackout Effectors Musket fuzz
  • Electro Harmonix Pulsar

You can have it as high as you want. However, it start to get silly as the guitar covers your ribs.
1. Open My Computer.
2. Open C:
3. Click on WINDOWS.
4. Open the folder "Media."
5. Click on the file "onestop."
6. Listen.

I need to have the guitar well under my chelipeds for my type of dancing to be comfortably executed.
Goodness gracious me!

To all prog-heads: Steve Howe height is too high. Unfortunately, not high enough to block his hideous face.

This. You don't really need it that high for rhythm playing, and vice versa.

I have my strat inbetween the bottom of my ribs and just so you can see my belt. Comes of playing in a Beatles/British Invasion covers band
#18
Most people who have the ability to shred well and alternate pick and sweep etc.. cleanly and well live will have a higher strap. Simple as.
#19
Misleading title.

I like my guitar up high, but that's just because it gives me more control.
I always manage to come off as a prick with my guitar hanging low.

My friend has it so low that to play he slouches over, the base of the body on the side of his knee, and the guitar tilted pretty far up.
#26
I just have it covering the crotch area. :S

My hand starts getting sore after awhile, but it's definitely comfortable enough for me.
#27
I have belt scratches in the middle of my guitar's back. Low, but not too low. Easy control, good look.

Obviously it depends on the guitar. You can't really have a Razorback this high:

Bands I must see in concert
Silvertide
The Black Crowes
Jackyl
Black Stone Cherry
AC/DC
StoneRider
Freedomhawk
The Darkness and/or the sideprojects of the band members
Buckcherry

Nice. Never really noticed how the headstock looked until I looked at yours, only part I don't like. The rest is great. I would totally get one if I had the money.

Ok, now to stick with the thread:



That's about how high I wear mine, works for me.

I snapped my high E once and sliced my finger open, so I can only assume snapping the low E would put me into a coma or something.

did anyone else thing by the title thread is about pot?

anyway, it also depends on the type. fenders go higher, gibsons go lower. For bassists, it depends on how good you are.
