    I do occasionally have the strap (I keep an acoustic on it, so the strap is tied to the headstock) catch on the top of the stand when I pick it up

    Lark Street Music in NJ is a superb store, if anyone has the chance to go. I'm probably going to buy that 355.

    Okay, studio is still very much in the creation phase. Scooped one of the night stands from a guest room to sit my amp on, still have no guitar stand, so basically just have a bit of space hollowed out and making do. If I have things set up to suit me by January I'll be both surprised and happy.

    I used to have a flametop Epi LP. Really nice guitar for the price.

    Been noticing many folks play the Fender Jaguar for ambient music. Is there a technical reason for this or is it just because they can be had for (relatively) cheap?

    vintage ones can be had relatively cheaply, though this isn't the reason why they are used for a number of styles.

    Just surprised to see it being used in ambient music so much.

    When it comes to pedals is there a true difference in sound between analog and digital or is this marketing to do things like charge nearly $700 for that Moog pedal I posted up thread?

    The Jazzmaster is the skinny jeans of the guitar world. That said, I like them (the Jazzmaster, not the skinny jeans).

    i believe the jazzmaster was intended to be the "flagship" guitar for Fender, but everybody was buying Strats and Teles instead. I bet you could find an all original pre-CBS Jazzmaster sunburst for around the $3K mark.

    No thoughts on tonal differences of pedals?

    I plan to aim for this type of stuff so I'll need pedals.

    I think that early on, there was noticeable tonal differences, but as digital amps and effects have developed they've become closer and closer. It's essentially now a "Made-in-America" or not -type argument. You can still get a very vintage and warm vibe from older analog stuff, but digital effects are swiftly catching up.

    FWIW, one of my favorite pedals ever is the old Boss PH-2 phaser.

    I wouldn't buy a Jazzmaster or Jaguar. There are far too many other great guitars to buy instead at a better value and with better resale potential.
