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?
i havent tryed them
if you think the strat is heavy you should try a les paul
strats are a little over 7lbs les paul is a lot over 8 lbs
You could try a wider padded strap like one I have…about 3.5in wide at the shoulder..by Planet Waves i believe.
