Well I'm a big guy (6'7" 300 lbs.). I was wondering what guitar I should get to fit my size. I currently have a ghetto strat, but my fingers seem to big for it. My fingers always touch another string while im trying to play one note. Any help?

get one with a wider neck and larger scale. this means that the frets will be further apart and the strings will be too. Wider necks are not usual, there usually is a standard, i believe

No I don't play basketball. I'm Indian. And I don't wanna play the bass. I'm a tuba player, got sick of playing bass notes. Do you guys know if Epiphone's run big or small?

epi is small man try a ES-355 hollowbody by gibson

bb king had one , and hes fu.cking huge
" the lick is simply a diminished harmonic minor arpeggiated sequence of dominant stitonics descending down in whole steps in the Phrygian mode...with a raised fourth.

I'm glad you said an ES. I've always wanted one of those. My dreams may come true.
#16
nah es355
or sheraton also would probably look less weird on you than a SG lol

Check this out the guitarist on the left with the long hair he's about your size. I dont think they make over size guitars so you might just have to get used to playing Chris Flipin doesnt have much of a probelm with it so its just something you need to adapt to. He is playing a Gibson Les Paul by the way.

Quit guitar, move to America and try out for an NFL team as an Offensive tackle.

Get a guitar with 24 frets, or with extra jumbo frets.

That won't actually make a difference.
