Hello again, I am back this time with an SG question for players who also play other guitars. I have some damage in my forearm ligaments that makes it hard to play lower on the neck. I can manage single notes for a few minutes but even easy things like the 'Crazy train' opening riff can bring on the pain in a matter of a few runs. Opens chords are almost a no-go, unles it's just a few in a song. I can play just fine when I go above the 3rd fret, that is why I dabbled in tuning a full step down and using a capo but, I didn't like it that much. When I first, started learning to play, it was on a stratocaster but, I quickly switched to my current SG for it's shorter scale length. I didn't know then that the SG is often known to "feel" longer to players because the strap button is located behind the 22nd fret, as to somewhere around the 17th fret for something like a Les Paul. Being left-handed makes me some kind of monster and music stores around my area don't carry any stock for my breed; apart for strats and teles, only Squiers at that, let's not waste a fender on filthy lefties. :) I am interested to know if it might be worth getting an Epiphone Les Paul or a Gretsch like this one? https://www.long-mcquade.com/48244/...Pro_Jet_Electric_Guitar_-_Black_Left_Hand.htm Do these types guitars feel like fret one is closer to your body by a good margin? Sorry for the long post but, I didn't know how to explain in just a few words.
