Adjusting to an new/unfamiliar neck shape?
9:50 am

I have had my Martin OMC-18e for a little over a month now. Somehow I did not notice this in the store, but at home it has been causing me thumb pain. Both the first knuckle and base joint knuckle start hurting even within playing it for 5 minutes! This has never happened to me before with any guitar and I've played guitar for almost 20 years. I truly love the guitar in every way. The balance, tone, smell, playability... all incredible. But this darn hand pain! I even took a whole week off of playing any guitar at all while on vacation, didn't touch one. When I came back I picked up the Martin and low and behold within a short time the pain had returned.

My question is, has anyone else had trouble adjusting to a new neck shape? Did you ever experience hand pain from a neck that went away over time?

​I did not find the right solution from the internet.
