The past couple days I've been experimenting with different guitar heights while standing up, and I can't find one that's really comfortable. I've played standing up plenty of times before, but I was never really comforable, just with the way my pick was hitting the strings or how my wrist bent. So Pit, what's your comfy position?

I play a PRS Singlecut if it matters.

I like to keep the guitar down around my ankles, just like my pants.
Tom Morello position is the only way to go.
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag

i like to have mine a tiny bit higher up then most. its alot easier to play faster (tho i cant really play that fast at all lol) idk i find it more comfortable

I used to have it low, but things like tapping and tremolo picking are so much easier to do having your guitar high

i have my guitar pretty high currently because ive been playing loads of protest the hero and its infinitely harder when the guitars at your ankles...

I usually have mine just above the waist; It feels relatively loose and comfortable there, but isn't so low that it noticeably hinders my playing.

I have my bass really high, but I sometimes play it more horizontally then some might.
I play like a Beatle haha, when I first played I just accepted the initial strap position which was high, and now i'm used to it.
I play my guitar at **** height. It hides my boner.

I can keep it as low as Kirk Hammet does but then I have some trouble with solos.

I have mine a bit higher than Jimmy Page, so the neck pickup is about at happy trail-level.

Quote by ilikepirates

not hated
I have mine so that when I stand up and sit down it is in the same position. So I guess the bottom of the guitar is at about my waist.
