For me it's all about the connection with the guitar. If I pick up a 335 type instrument then I play very differently to when I pick up a Les Paul or Strat because the note reacts a different way. If I'm looking for tone and resonance then a 335 gives that to me, but I can't play fast on it because to me it isn't about playing fast. If I want to play fast then I need a Les Paul or Strat because the note "feels" different. Strange, but there it is.
