My hand has been killing me, I have been doing alot of chording lately and my index finger freaks out at the lightest brush or knock into something. The funny thing is I have no pain while playing:confused-smiley-010
What is the action set like on these guitars? If the action is too high you are going to have to work much to hard to push the strings down, esoecialy on bar chords.
On any decent guitar your action should be between 1/8 and 3/16 from the first fret to the topnor last fret.
If the action is this low, try a lighter guage of strung.
