Here is a topic you do not see mentioned too often. This is especially true for older players who have been toting the axe for years. WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE TO BE THE MOST COMFY GUITAR TO SLING OVER YOUR SHOULDER AND PLAY FOR HOURS?. Well, it is no mere chance that I chose the SG forum to post this query. For me it is hands down the SG. Weight wise it is a dream. The ability to bring it close to you is a major factor. It is not bulky or awkward to hold. You can (pardon the term) caress the instrument and make it feel as if the notes are coming out of you. The Les Paul? Gimme a break, no way. Jazz Boxes? Are you kidding? Unless you are way over 6 foot with long arms you are not going to caress and hold one close. Tele's? The hard angular edge takes away from the intimate hug. Strats? Not bad due to the contours but not as intimate as an SG. Acoustics? Forget about it. For me the SG is the most comfortable guitar to hold. I am medium build and not tall but that has less to do with it and more to do with the design of the SG. Just sayin'.
