I play a fender Kenny Wayne Shepherd Stratocaster which is quite heavy.  I have started to get a lot of neck pain recently, particularly after a long practice session. Do any of you suffer from this?

has anyone used the gel shoulder pads which fit onto the strap and if so do they help?

thanks Alan

You could try a wider padded strap like one I have…about 3.5in wide at the shoulder..by Planet Waves i believe.
