I second everything you just said.
We think playing it will help get the ladies? :rockon2:I've never understood why it's such a male-dominated thing.
Firstly, I know your thread was titled "Ladies, what do you think?", and I am a man last I checked... but I'll chime in anyway.
Ooops! Sorry Robboman, I was not trying to exclude you gentleman. Just wondering if there was anyone else out there with the same problem. Not to mention it's refreshing to get other womens opinions for a change on the subject.... Being in a male dominated Industry (Logistics/transportation planning and dispatch) has made me grow a somewhat thick skin and I generally do not offend easily. However, when I approach a sales person for advice and they talk to me like I'm a moron who knows nothing... I do get a bit offended. Even when I was buying my Taylor one guy had the audacity to turn to my Husband and ask him what the budget was. We left and they lost a hefty sale and possible life long customer. We bought from the 1st store to approach me directly and they even matched the lowest price we found! Now it's the only store I go to...
With full size acoustics I notice my right shoulder hurts if I play for more than about 3 hours without taking a break. That could just be that I'm not used to the size. I can usually adjust the strap and find a comfortable spot. Electrics and classicals are small enough.What about guitars themselves? Is there anything noteworthy in the design of the guitar that makes them more comfortable or appealing to female players?
I once made a strat for my old girlfriend as a Christmas present that had a slightly smaller than usual body, but I'm not sure that it was all that important thinking back though.
Hey it's not that it is necessarily offensive, but it does perpetuate the idea that items for ladies need to be all cutesy etc. By doing so, it helps keep the idea alive that there is one thing for a man and a different one for a woman.Well, if that actually offends someone I pity you.
All in good fun!
I like John Travolta's line in 'Broken Arrow',The lesson - Never 'assume', it makes an 'ass' out of 'u' and 'me'!
Personnally, I think your skin is too thin.
Has nothing to do with thin skin Dude, it's the fact that as a female I object to someone handing me a guitar because "This one is pretty" I was just opening up a discussion to see if it was just me so to speak. I realise that it takes a long time for things to come around, but thankfully, the times they are a changin!
