  1. Heya,

    I know alot of us play with rings especially on your neck hand, but i was wonder how it affects the neck?

    Does it or has it damaged your neck in any way?

    Just curious! :help:

    Nope, no damage here. My ring isn't very ostentatious though, it's pretty small. The only time it starts getting in the way is when I'm doing really fast runs on a short scale bass. That's why I don't use short scales anymore. :)

    I wear a wedding ring and it never touches the neck.
    I just checked it with my 6 string and my 4 string. No contact with the neck in all positions. That's just me though.

    I wear a 4mm wedding band that has an ornate design with lots of sharp edges. No problems.

    No problems here and I have small hands. :meh:
    With my normal playing position, it doesn't even come close.
    That's just me though.
