I've already bought a basic Acoustic Guitar off Amazon, but it's uncomfortable to play. I know the correct positioning to hold the Guitar, its just instead of my right shoulder resting down in the proper position, it's angled upwards so it's causing a ton of strain trying to play it.
Here is the link:
I did a little bit of research before I bought it and the typical practice was to go based off your age/ height. I am 26 and 5'11, so I assumed I should go with the Full Size Guitar. But clearly for this particular model that's not the case.
I don't know if I should stick to the full size guitars, just a smaller version, or go the 38" 3/4 avenue that Amazon also offers for this item.
Any recommendations or ideas for which route I should go here?
I should also add if it helps that there is another Guitar in my house now that's the perfect size, arm rests in the proper spot and everything, but when I did the scale length measurement it was barely different from the Guitar above.
Update: Added a picture of both guitars side by side if that helps. The one on the left is from Amazon, the other is the one we already had. Length of Amazon is 41", ours is 40". Scale length of both is 25.5". Width of where my arm would rest is 15.5" for Amazon, and 15" for ours. So it's "slightly" smaller overall and that seems perfect for the.
