Technical
Does it matter what the fingerboard on a guitar is made from?

Apart from making a big difference to how the guitar looks, different types of wood can feel and sound quite different when you're playing on them, and their differing feels can subtly affect the way you play.

Rosewood: Soft-feeling and warm-sounding, rosewood fretboards are popular for good reason.

Maple: Offering a brighter tone with more high end, Maple fretboards also wear over time which can be attractive if you want your axe to look lived-in. 

Ebony: similar to maple in tone and sturdier than rosewood, ebony fretboards offer a darker-looking neck with a brighter tone.

Does it matter what country a guitar is made in?

Despite what nationalists might tell you, there's not really any simple answer. Even though many companies design their guitars in the USA or Europe, the vast majority of instruments are actually manufactured in China, Mexico, Indonesia, Japan and Korea. There aren't any 'rules' as to what country makes good or bad guitars, but rather which brands have tighter quality control.

Does body shape matter?

Surprisingly, it does.  Wood type is not the only thing that affects the tone.  The shape of the guitar can also influence the sound.  As some shapes require the use of more wood than others, it can definitely give the tone a different texture.  Some shapes will also work better if you are performing seated as opposed to standing.  You also can't discount the importance of having the right "look" if that is what you are going for. 

What is the difference between Overdrive and Distortion?

Overdrive is literally what you get when a tube is pushed beyond its voltage limits causing a clip in the top of the waveforms resulting in a slight warm, fat and sometimes, sizzly tone. Overdrive pedals recreate that tone. The harder you strum, the angrier it sounds, so to speak. Distortion basically adds more clipping stages than overdrive and therefore has a more distorted tone. The more clipping stages added the more distorted the tone is. There is less definition with distortion as there are more overtones created because of the hard clipping.
