I began learning guitar on an SG style guitar. Based on the thigh position when seated, or the strap position when standing, I noticed that the neck of the guitar is slightly shifted toward the fretting hand compared to other popular designs. I understand that this is why the SG design is notorious for "neck dive". I found this design made learning open chords quite difficult due to my wrist extension and contortion at the first 3 frets. In particular, learning the F barre was exceptionally hard on this guitar design.
I'm wondering if this was just a personal negative experience or is it widely appreciated that the SG guitar design can be more physically demanding when learning open and barre chords? Worded another way, is the SG a bad design for a complete beginner?
Edit for context
I'm not trying to identify the "best guitar design" for a beginner. Rather, I'm curious. Many have commented on the general complexity of executing a perfect F barre, but I'd like to note that, with the SG design, I also found it hard to execute an A major chord, which is comparably easy.
Having struggled with certain open chords and the F barre on an SG, I tried other guitar designs including Stratocasters, Superstrats and Les Pauls, and I found my wrist was far less bent at the first 3 frets. As a result, I switched to a Superstrat and have since had no trouble with the F barre.
I ask this question because after searching forums online, I didn't find any mention of wrist angle and open chords based on guitar design, but it seems to be well-documented that on an SG the neck will be shifted more toward your fretting hand due to the position at which the neck joins the guitar body.
I'm wondering if my experience was generalizable, as I'd like to be informed when a friend asks me for first-guitar advice in the future.
