I liek to wear mine high. I think it kinda looks cool high, not like normal 'cool' but I just really like the look of a high guitar. I don't know how much sense that makes but that's all I can think to describe it now.

I play a Xiphos so it's a goofy shape so I think i can describe it as the lowest horn/point is around the crotch area and the highest point a few inches from my collar. I also think the headstock is a bit above my head.

(It's been raised since my avatar picture was taken)

Lol, if i had my way i would have my guitar on a necklace around my neck if they made something like that.


Generally speaking i wear my guitar quite high, i have an RG 120, and when standing up the bottom of the guitar is just at the top of my belly button.

I have my guitar with the pickups at the top of my stomach. Dunno how else to say it. I don't see the point of having your guitar low unless your on stage.

I don't think its necessary on stage too..But people are different and maybe they feel comfortable playing guitar really low...I don't think its all just for show off...
