Playing standing up is totally different than playing sitting down. Ibanez RG models do not fit my body and desired playing style for stand up playing. My broad, prone shoulders cause difficulty with standup guitar. My sciatica came back due to having to play bent over — a posture that probably conveys some physical of the discomfort to my audience that I feel as the performer. In any case, it's no good. I want to play with good stance: standing upright, shoulders back, hips forward. I'm looking for a guitar that is going to be easy for me to play standing up. And the reason that I am posting this in the Lutheiry forum is that the physical design of the guitar matters, and such details are considerations for guitar designers & builders. The guitar must be: * Hanging so that strumming area is waist level, or a bit lower. * With the neck to the left and angled up so that I can play high enough on the neck. (This will have to do with the body shape and position of strap buttons.) * Neck thru (ideally) or set neck, prefer 24 frets. The best guitar I've found that fits those criteria is a 2016 Gibson flying V. It was about $1100 at GC and that's a bit more than I want to spend now. It has a rosewood fingerboard and 22 frets. I'd rather 24 and ebony or maple. Korina wings would be nice, too. Although I must admit, that Gibson V in drop D sounded balls. Probably has hot pups in it (though the balls could've been from the Engl). Dean V's look really good, but I can't find any in town. Please advise me on locating a guitar that will fit me. Thank you.
