All of this may sound like you have to spend a fortune to find out what works for you, but you really don't. You already know what your current guitar feels like, so you can go to any guitar store and try out a bunch of different guitars to see how they feel under your fingers. Try some really cheap guitars and some really expensive ones as well and see how they compare to your own guitar.

Your local guitar or music store is also where you can typically find someone to do a professional setup. Professional setups really aren't expensive at least compared to buying a new guitar, so I usually find that it's totally worth the expense. And they might even be able to tell you if your guitar even needs a setup or not!

I hope this tutorial has been helpful for you, and that you'll start paying attention to the physical features of your instrument and how well that works or doesn't work with your own hands and fingers. Just remember that you don't need to go out and buy a bunch of instruments the best thing you can do for your playing right now is to simply keep learning skills and keep practicing. Focusing on gear and instruments can be fun of course, but it can also be a huge distraction. No new guitar right now can even come close to how much you can improve your sound by putting in an extra hour of practice!
