Is guitar weight a factor? Either standing with the guitar slung around your neck or supporting the guitar on your legs, guitar weight must be a consideration. The history of electric guitars has largely been about the heaviness of the guitar either good or bad, hasn't it?
Weight of Guitar Factor
Yes, the weight of the guitar in history has always effected your playing.. example being heavy Les Pauls... and after playing for a couple of hours your back suffers.. this is an issue which is treated seriously by guitar brands.. to have a guitar balanced so you can balance the guitar with headstock and body in perfect harmony helps... then again heavy woods produce different tones and some purists say heavy guitars are a must... so l guess it's down to the individual!?…
Michael Casswell suggests in his courses that the guitar should be very lightweight. He always sought out lightweight Stratocasters.
