    Ahh... I see. The Majesty Monarchy looks like the most comfortable thing ever (though I've never actually played one). Ernie Ball seems to have that shit down.

    RGA's got the look down (much like the Stef Carpenter ESPs) with the full carve. I don't know why the "Fender" slab tops (i.e regular RGs) with just the arm carve are so much more popular. With CNC, it can't be that much of a difference. Ultimately, I'm splitting hairs here. I don't have that much of a gripe. Like I said before, neck feel is WAY more important, IMO.

    ESP Horizon is my personal fave when it comes to comfort.
    I play Suhrs, not poor people guitars. -Chris

    I vote Ibanez S too.

    Then maybe the Dinky sized Start. It's not much smaller but I can feel a difference for the better. The cheaper Wolfgang with the Arm rest contour and the belly cut makes it much more comfortable than the mid and US models to me.

    Having also owned at least a dozen RGs, i have never experienced this.


    I'm also weird for thinking a Warlock sits properly in every position comfortably so take that with a grain of salt

    TOM or topmount Floyds get you the same comfort without a fully arched top, since it gets the bridge up off the top of the guitar. It's the reason I cannot stand traditional Fender trems, flatmount hardtails, and recessed Floyds.

    Sterling may be a bit eccentric but I do remember one thread on the forum where he personally found an old limited edition guitar for a guy that was asking about where to buy one which was pretty cool. He seems like somebody that takes his company very personally.

    Anyway as far as guitars that are most comfortable I have no idea. Every guitar sucks in some way as far as comfort goes.

    Really, just a Strat. You can nit-pick it for other things - I prefer larger frets than they generally come with, tonally they're not for everyone, and upper access leaves a bit to be desired by modern standards... But it's just a super comfortable body shape.
