I usually play a bit lower than you, the bottom of the guitar body is a bit bellow belt
level.

EDIT: scratch that, looking at that picture I play it pretty much at that height.

Kinda low actually. I actually find high up (good for soloing and easier overall) but just uncomfortable when it sits at your stomach like that. I play with it just under my belt, so like right on my naughty spot.

Johnson's naturally have a small kink in them, but if you've got a ninety-degree bend in it you should get it checked.

But hey, at least you could piss round corners.
#16
The body on the guitar I usually play is kinda big so even when i wear it down the top comes up pretty high. (It's a semi acoustic)

It depends on the guitar for me, but I usually wear it mid to high.
#17
mines low, but not too low... not like Slash low, when people wear their guitars like really high like at their chest.. it just looks so nerdy, you probably play a lot better, but it looks horible.

no one should have it this low

I play mine around my belt for my electrics.
For acoustic, like belly button area. It's much easier for me to fret and such since acoustics are rather large.

i play mine with the center of the guitar a little higher than belt level. It is much easier to play fast licks and runs with it higher.

in the picture in the OP, i basically have my guitar like that, maybe around a 1/2" lower... i just raised the strap yesterday around 2-3" from what i used to do. Still looks fine, and i can still do what little solos i can play sitting down
#28
Well. When my friends wear it it's like Jimmy Page low. But its the end of the strap and it's only on like.. my penis. Then I raised it a little to about my waist to play chords easier (im a rhythm guitarist.. crazy chords and whatnot)

AT my knees, I actually like it. It's the lowest my strap can go. I don't know anyone else who plays lower than me (excluding famous people). I play Lead by the way.
#33
Lol yeah i need to work on this. I'm so used to playing sitting down that i'm going to look like a retard when i finally get a gig and have to stand lol. If i keep it at the place where it is when i'm sitting down it'll over my waist :\
#34
I hate when it's low cause I have to reach down for it and it's uncomfortable. I guess it's a little above the waist?
#35
ive tried playing low before. i honestly dont know why anyone likes it. i figure, if those guys have to tilt their neck up that much, why dont they just wear it higher? also ive heard its bad for your hands and wrists to play too low. suposed to strain them too much when barring and soloing.
#37
middle of my guitar's body sit just above my belt, its good for performing but i use to play like Beatles high when i was starting out, good for learning to play when u dont care how funny it look... i just wanted to play my guitar damnit!
#38
The top of my guitar's body is just below my belly button. It is a little low, but I think it looks and feels good at that level. You shouldn't worry about where you play at, and where other people play at. You need to play you guitar at the level where it is most comfortable. You can have the most expensive guitars and amps in the world and play your guitar at the floor, but if you can't play it comfortably, you will sound just as bad as a n00b player with a Starcaster on a 15 watt Frontman.

With it that low, i gaurantee you cant stretch from 5-7-12 on the low e string... Or any type of decent stretching for that matter.
