Hi,

I have a new G&L Legacy, with quite a thick neck (G&L #3). It looks like the fretboard "sits" quite far high from the body (see images).

My questions are:

How does it affect sound? Resonance?
Is it prone to affect playability, or is it just something that I need to get used to?

Thanks!

It should be fine, as long as the saddles have enough height adjustment in them.

It really makes no significant difference. Some guitars have no body at all below the strings.


No, seriously:

For me it is not tone, but more playability as I do not like my right arm to be in mid-air but rather resting on the body. As a result I like a low-angle neck that sits fairly low off the body (Les Paul necks sit with too high of an angle for my preference, but Strats get closer to my ideal)

Yeah it looks fine. about the same on my G&L
