first off, maybe we should look at this
here is a picture of a closer look at the neck
so the flat surface that arcs from heel to headstock (I feel pretty stupid describing the neck this way, considering it doesn't actually have a headstock) is a focus point for ideal thumb placement. makes the hand position ergonomically comfortable along the entire length of the neck.
note the sexy laminate along the neck
the argument for the defense can be found here and it is pretty damn compelling
I love the closing remarks
The curved rear section and the angles of the surfaces interact to encourage a more correct playing position and a straighter wrist
The result is less stress on muscles, joints and tendons, which lets you play more relaxed, with less fatigue, which results in less risk of injury and better playing
and with that, your Honor, the defense rests.
