    Hi guys,
    In doubt wether I'm going for 2 pedals for 400€ or a super mint used Pawn-Shop Mustang Japan, candy-apple red.
    I have to make a decision today.
    Guess I'm leaning towards the second option.
    I already have 25 pedals... and 5 USA std electric guitars.
    First-world problem of course. But it's giving me headaches !:munch

    Pedals will still be there... guitar may not. I'd get the guitar.

    Hmm. Without details it's hard to have a conversation.

    So I'll talk to myself.

    I like everything about Mustangs and Jaguars. Except the scale.
    Anything less than a 25.5" scale makes my fingers feel squished
    while fretting high up the neck. If I can't play barre chords high
    up the neck, the guitar doesn't work for me.

    Speaking of "scale", Mustangs and Jaguars—even SGs—make
    me feel like that guy in TAD. You know, as if I were a giant with
    a tiny guitar. It makes me feel like an elephant with a tranquilizer dart
    sticking out of from its hide.

    Two pedals for 400€? What two pedals? This is either worth it or not.
    Hard to tell. If we are talking about a kick-ass delay or sonic mangler,
    then I'd say jump in with both feet! The water's fine!

    If one of the pedals is an MWFX Judder, then definitely get the pedals!

    I hate the phrase "First world problems". I suppose my aversion to that
    phrase constitutes a "first-world problems. But I digress. And cringe.
    And then digress some more. I guess the way I see it, in the world
    there are problems. The severity of those problems is subjective and
    depends upon your point of view.

    Candy-apple red? If we were talking about a Made in Japan
    Jazzmaster, then I'd be interested. Mustang? No thanks.
    Let that pony go out to pasture.

    Dude, you make some valid points. But the rest is gibberish. YMMV.
    IMHO, etc., etc.
