    Well, it's official, I have the smallest hands! I have Ibanez Wizzard necks, Fender necks and 50's LP. I like all and don't find any of them harder to play. Maybe just different. Note: I am only 5' 4" tall.....so kind of expected :)
    Odd thing, when trying to play lead, I prefer the LP.

    Just got a pair of 2 XL Can Am driving gloves at Christmas for my off road car and and barely could squeeze my hand through the opening. I've put them through a lot of abuse working my 30 acres and extreme sports/hobbies...I pray that I can keep playing. Funny I love the Ibanez wizard necks or thin wide over thick neck but I also enjoy playing the music that fits the style...
    I'm only 5'9 (shrunk over the years from 5'11)...lol

    I just want to know how big Hendrix's hands were! He straight up has bananna hands!

    I seriously get hand envy when I see his hands haha! I think I recall reading in a biography his doctor(?) said his hands were extremely out of proportion, he his hands were of someone 7' tall and Jimi was around 5'11.

    Nature provided the size required, if Cynthia Plaster Caster is to be believed...
