I never really noticed it before but my hands are gigantic. From the bottom of my hand to the tip of my middle finger is about 8 1/4 inches. According to a football glove size chart my brother has, Id have to wear a XXXL! It really helps for shredding except that my guitar only has medium jumbo frets so its like impossible for me to use all four fingers in the upper register. And its even more remarkable considering Im 17 and only 5'9". Jeez I hope I grow into the size of my hands, even though it is a little late.


EDIT: Well now since I see some people talking about width and stuff Ill add that width wise(from thumb to pinkie) is about 9 1/2 inches. I might even put a pic up soon...

Goodness!

EDIT: I just measured from the bottom of my hand to the tip of my middle finger and it's 8 inches. Odds are you're not special.

Same with my penis, though it's useless for playing guitar.

EDIT: My hands are medium sized at best though.

Mine are just over 7 inches.

Does this bear any relevance to the size of our love-guns?

I don't understand what you're talking about. Those come in one size only.


Okay, I'm done with failing for now.

I'm 13 5'8 and my hands are 8 inches the way you measured.

Wow your hands are huge considering your only 5'5. Im 6'0 and mine are only 8 inches
#21
Woah, my hands are the same size as your TS. But I've never considered them big.

I'm 6'1" and just last year when I was 17 I was only 5'11" so you've got time.

Well according to the glove chart 7 to 8 is like a small to an xl so it actually is rather big, even though it doesnt seem like it. And come on, my dad only has a hand thats 7 inches, so does my twin bro, and my dads like 5'8" or 5'8" and a half, and my bro is 5'6". So mine are big for my genetics/size. I went to the NBA store in NYC in 8th grade they had the molded hand prints of nba stars, and the only guy whose hands were noticeably bigger than mine were shaqs. Ive been able to palm a bball since 5th grade...

I've got huge hands too, about 7 and a half inches, and I'm only 15 and about 5' 10". The ladies like 'em, but thin necks are kind of uncomfortable.


There is no continuity in this thread!

Your hands aren't huge!

Mine are about 7 and a quarter, and my hands are apparantly 'tiny and girlish'. And I can only use skinny-neck guitars.

And I'm 6'0.

Well, they're also 6" from side to tip of thumb, and each of my fingers is more than a half inch wide.

Mines are 8 inches, I'm about 5ft8 and 17. I think that's an average size for teenagers who play guitar. I would love to know what the measurement of Steve Vai's left hand is.



I like how his left hand span is much wider than his right.

Why the hell are there five fingers (not including the thumb) on his left hand?

That's because there's an extra finger there. I assume it's a joke.

I'm 14 years old, 6'3, and 150 pounds, and the length from the end of my thumb to the tip of my pinky is 10".

Thats kind of odd.
