Ok - The title says it all. What's the most comfortable guitar you've ver played? Based ONLY on how comfortable it was - not sound or name, just comfort.

For me, it had to be the Epiphone Les Paul Standard. I have yet to find a guitar as comfortable to play. AMAZING neck with a good feel.

So, start posting what guitars you have felt the were most comfortable!

EBMM John Petrucci 6 w/ Piezos.

The forearm cutaway is really big and gives a nice place to rest your arm, and it kinda like cradles your arm.

The bridge feels like a TOM (very comfortable for palm muting) but works like a Floyd... very comfy to work with.

And the neck... wow.. that neck. Birdseye maple, some crazy gunstock oil + other EBMM secret stuff, it has a thin C shape which has substantially more feel than most thin U type guitars, it's got nice grip, but it's thin as a mother. Very easy fret access, very easy to play guitar.

the most confortable guitar for me, i played a fender jaguar from the 50's once, and it was awesome
#18
my own ibanez rg760. the wizard neck is so thin and fast, it also has a curve on the body where i can rest my arm

The Ibanez JS series have the finest contours. They fit like a glove.

I don't see how anybody can find a LP shaped guitar noticeably comfortable, seeing as they are heavy, and don't have contours, but to each his own I guess.
#22
The Ibanez S series. The neck is great, and they fit perfectly on my lap/when im standing without obstructing anything.

I also love the feel of Teles and Strats, the neck is extremely comfortable.

yeah I tried a fender American strat the other day, Man the neck fits right in your hand,
#25
any Gibson Les Paul with binding is the most comfortable, and if not a paul then the steve vai ibanez signature model is almost as amazing

It Was a Black 1966 Fender Strat. I much preferred it to my 57. To me it just sounded and felt better. I still appreciate my old '57, but it was starting to get beat up so I had to retire and replace it with a *nearly* identical looking 50's strat, Its no comparison.

I would give anything to have that 66.

For me it's between my to be Epiphone Les Paul (Paying off monthly to the guy in the shop - Have it by November) and my current Guitar - a £45 second hand Blaze Stratocaster copy. So comfortable to play, words can't describe it.

Quote by IbanezRckr101
epi SG, it just felt good, i liked the neck and i didnt mind the balance, or lack of


I agree. I've found the Epiphone SG's fatter, rounder neck to be pretty comfortable.

Gibson SG, I love the neck and its pitched perfectly, strat necks genneral have no pitch at all (although its adjustable, but thats a major pain in the ass), plus i just like the fatter neck.

Well i checked out some Dean guitar (forgot what model)

but anyways...jezus that guitar was lightweighted compared to mine , felt good and...pfoe i could reach every fret with ease :p unlike my current guitar =P

so probably that...but then again i haven't tested that many guitars (all my friends have the same type/style guitar) :p ya know basic ....so
#40
the ibanez SA series (i think it was SA260FM) felt really good... awesome neck and it was so light(which was good)

my cyclone feels comfortable too...(probably the short neck) also the squier affinity tele was felt much more comfortable than i thought.
