Salut Frenchy!Bienvenue Jacques !
As I mentioned a bit earlier: I have the chance to try a Jaguar this week ... Hurray!Hi JP. Welcome to the GC! I have a 1974 Gibson SG Standard with a nice neck. It's by far the most comfortable guitar to play for me. Having said that, I think a jag could be a good fit for you as well.
Thanks, Marcos!Bienvenue Jacques. Riviere du Loup is a beautiful town. Been there a long time ago. Enjoy the forum
One of these is going to follow you home! Wanna bet?Update: I will have the chance to try a (brand new) Fender Jaguar this week, right here in town!
So great chance for comparing the Strat against this "little" gem.
I'll update this thread (for those who could be interested) soon.
Thanks, John.Welcome JacquesP , I too have been playing since the sixties with small hands and I like a Strat or Tele most of the time . The small scale is good for easier reach . I`v never had a Jag but always thought it would be nice . I hope you find a good one . Maybe the pickup type on your old jag was part of the magic too or string gage.
As soon as you said that you made enough to pay the rent back then I felt jealous of you abilities . I joined this forum 1 year ago and I learn something every day thanks to the vast talent of fellow members .
Thanks, Greco.One of these is going to follow you home! Wanna bet?
You should start a dedicated thread about this new trend. Others will be interested.Edit: in case nobody's told you, it's now considered more acceptable to own more than one guitar. A trend, I've heard, actually embraced by some members here.
Looks like a regular pattern these days: having more than one guitar, including myself.Hey Jacques, cool digs. Welcome!
I'm old enough, my back bolster is just a familiar part of my playing regime. I only use an electric as a 'silent guitar', in the wee hours*. I really liked a little Gibson SG 50's Tribute ($500 +/- used, vgc, ohsc) & never got along with the big old jazz box I had actually purchased for the couch gig.
There's imo a lot more to choose from, nowdays.
There's some sweet Canadian electrics being built (for & by) members here--if you're in the mood to wallow in retirement.
Everyone deserves a brand new car, once in their lives, and a Custom built guitar--by one pair of hands, for one pair of hands.
Canada has really become a Player, when it comes to totl guitars. Your neck-of-the-woods is close imo to the possible epicenter.
Fingertip pain goes away, as soon as you begin your wallow. Well it at least ceases to matter. Enjoy.
