Tom Morello has it up to his neck (and good on him for it)
But most metal bands have it down to their knees.

High or low you need to find a place where you can comfortably play the full range of the guitar. I tend to hang my guitars low my right arm is almost straight. A lot of guys who come by here always say how can you play it hanging so low? It's just comfortable for me to play that way. One of the reasons I hate playing while sitting is I can play comfortably like that the guitar just sits too high.

Just experiment with different heights until you find one that best suits you.

Yeah, Just find what is the most comfortable to you. The higher it is, The easier it is to control the guitar on the fretboard but the lower it is, the harder it is to control it on the fretboard. I don't think I'd be able to play mine low like Johnny Ramone.
Always tin your strings.

If you are more into playing dropped tuning power chords or even just regular power chords (metal), it looks pretty sweet with the guitar hanging low. As you move higher up the neck, a low-slung guitar gets harder to play, especially around 17th fret and higher. If you play higher on the neck, its usually easier if you're guitar is higher.

The advice that I have been given and i have seen on UG is to start high and then as you get good with that lower it a bit, rinse and repeat. In no time you will be playing at your knees.

aren't you more likely to get carpal tunnel if you play low?
