    I second the Ibanez S-series. In addition to that the Ibanez Radius (and the JS which is based on the R), are super comfortable.

    I miss my RGA. That was the best. Comfy archtop on the front, mass on the back (ohhhhh, yeah) for tone and balance (proper Sabres are too thin IMO).

    Explorer or Mockingbird. Gotta have the angled neck and a proper unrecessed bridge though.

    You can always count on a good superstrat too, provided the bridge is right.

    Being ultra-Trve, I don't need to tell you what camp I am in.

    Granted, it's still not as decisive as EBMM's Bongo bass.

    As far as basses go, Jazz or similar offset. I fucking love Precisions, but a Jazz style offset is slightly more comfortable.

    Gibson/Dean style flying v. No upper cutout in the way, sits the same playing sitting or standing up.

    I definitely don't think they're the best LOOKING guitars - I'm in the RG camp for that one. A fruity swirled JEM is pretty much my ideal guitar. But despite their subjective looks, my two JPs are far and away the most comfortable guitars I own.

    Gotta disagree here. I've owned tons-and-tons of RGs (a dozen, perhaps)... and, well, they suck. The curve for the forearm is super specific. If you move left or right of that territory, you're on some jank sharp edge. It's actually pretty trash.

    The Fender Strat was a lazy solution (cheapass engineer Leo), but at least it had huge radii around the entire body.

    The Wizard II neck is freaking godly, though, and that's at least 70% of the point... particularly on ERGs... so I put up with it. What other options do I have that don't involve financial ass rape? ESP? Schecter?

    RGA was perfect... but the assclowns at Ibanez only make like four guitars a year that have the curved top for whatever dumbass reason.
