What exactly do you all mean by playability?
I think comfort does enter into the equation. I like dalbergia, oiled necks because my hand slides effortlessly. I like "fat" necks (Gibson 59s). I like a low action as long as I can still get "under" the string for bends, and the note doesn't fret out. I like shorter scale lengths because the reach and balance are comfortable to me. When all the elements are right, the guitar just seems to feel and play better.
