  1. Terri,
    I love music and want to hear it clearly with all the instruments audible in the song. Guitar music is one of my favorites; due to it can stand alone playing plenty of music solo. Your review of these guitars my question is one does have a better sound from what you are saying but what about the weight? Usually, a musician would prefer a lighter guitar while playing especially when standing for performances so this was just something I was wondering about.

    • Hey Susan

      I agree, standing for performances should be easy. With an acoustic guitar you get that lighter weight. 

      Keep in mind that electric guitars are built smaller due to not needing a hollowed chamber (as with the acoustic guitar). With minimized wood which we see with the many cutouts on the electric guitar, such as the various styles and designs, playing one is manageable and has made the weight almost a none issue. 

      Remember too that straps are available for any guitar and you will see in many guitar performances that the musicians sometimes raise a hand or both to wave and acknowledge the crowd while the guitar is held to the guitarist’s shoulders by the guitar strap.

      Also, some electric guitars are produced as smaller sizes.
