Thanks, Alistair! I figured this was destined to be CW, but some people are saying that CW is deprecated now, so I didn't want to put that in the question itself.

I am creating some "stub" answers intended to be improved and updated by those more expert than I. This question is a result of discussion in the comments of another question.

comment What to look for in a budget guitar for home recording?
As an aside, I have never been unhappy with an Ibanez. I cannot imagine you'll find a better electric under $200.

Excellent points, CyberFerret! You are right. My "how it feels is more important than how it sounds" bias is showing! I guess I assume a certain baseline of quality is established and then a choice is made!

comment Ibanez Edge III Tremolo has 2 'Zero' points
These nightmares (on top of the fact that I have enough trouble playing guitar without an extra input) are why I have hardtails!

comment Position of white dots in guitar fretboard
@ledfloyd - You're obviously much more of a theory guru than I am. Would you please edit this answer to include your insights? @mrbuxley - I wouldn't want to play that guitar now, either. I'm used to the 9th fret mark by now. I just wish it were the other way. However, ledfloyd's answer explains why it is where it is.

comment Looking at the frets VS not looking at the frets
Playing sitting down requires a proper place to sit. When I sit, I play on a relatively tall stool with a hard seat. I keep thinking I'll screw a footrest on it at the proper height for my left foot. But now I just use a shallow footrest designed for desk work. It can be a very comfortable way to play.

comment is there any free tab viewer for GuitarPro files?
I only have an iPhone, but TabToolkit was worth $10 on that platform, too. I love being able to carry a bunch of tabs in my pocket! Now that I have GP also, they work very well as complements to each other.
