    Do you know who makes that headless/bodyless guitar? It's not a Yamaha Silent Guitar-they have the tuners on the headstock.

I don't play a big arch top but rather a Gibson ES-355, so weight is not an issue. I have done recently a 6 hour gig where I was required to stand the whole time and I survived, and didn't really have a problem, which made me re-think my justifications for sitting, for about a minute.

    How about you? Do you sit or stand?
    Totally agree, Henry. As I got older (65) I was diagnosed with spinal arthritis. Standing for more than 15-20 minutes is all i can manage. Sitting and using a classical foot rest let's me play for 90 minutes!

    Archtops and acoustics i always sit on a stool or chair. With the 335 i get a stool, but also stand up a lot. Electric guitars or relative music i stand up !

    I'm still waiting for a theater director to have me play lying on a couch.. Hasn't happened yet!!

    That headless guitar looks like a Frameworks.

    I pretty much STAND for all practice and especially performance.
