What is the most comfortable body shape to play in the classic position ?
A Randy Rhoads-style V.
As far as a solidbody electric... I do tend to hold my Fender Prodigy (kind of a a superstrat type) in that position a bit when playing seated...
Strat, of course.
Les pauls and PRS in my experience, thats the position I always used to play in when sitting and I found those two guitars the most comfortable.
Who sits like that?
I'm a rather large guy at 6'8", so I tend to play all my guitars like this... Anything to get the nut away from my body a little bit.
Either that, or I tune my Jaguar baritone to standard and play that. Nothing in this world was made for people over 6'4". Haha.
Removing that watch would really help.
V's are very comfortable to play in that position.
If you want to sit like that I'd get a Flying V
Yup. No contest. But just be aware that the neck is out there in another time zone.
I'm not sure that it is appropriate to... oh wait! You meant guitars!
Well back in Soviet Union, classical guitar body plays YOU!
I play all my guitars in classical position when sitting. I have since a few years ago when I had shoulder surgery. I really think it's much more natural.
What if you are wearing a tight skirt?
Another vote for Flying V.
klein electric or one of the ergonomic "based on" models by Forshage, Canton, Koll, Curtis, etc.
