I'll try and make a long story short. I picked up guitar again about 6 years ago after a hiatus of about 15 years. I am now 38 with chronic back issues and carpal tunnel. Both of which are an operational hazard, I am a software engineer. My main guitars have been Gibson Les Pauls. I have been lucky with being able to play in bands (I should note this is a hobby). Late last year I got the idea that I would sell my 2 LPs cause I can't deal with the weight any longer and my wife was about to kill me spending more money on yet another guitar. Well, that just has not panned out well. I cannot for the life of me find a guitar that I bond with. I have even contemplated walking away from playing because of the frustration/pain. I have posted similar threads here, but this one is a bit different.
At the end of the day I need something that has a "larger neck" with a flat radius, think 59 or 58 LP but that only weighs between 6.5 to 7.5 lbs? Preferably with humbuckers. I know that is crazy thinking, I cannot find it. I've been playing a usa standard SG, and I just cannot seem to bond with it. So I ask you for your help, this venue has always given me great advice. SO PLEASE let me know what your suggestions are....
I really haven't had much experience outside the typical Gibson and Fender type guitars.
Thanks in advance and for reading.
