So wherein would you say that the biggest ergonomic difference lies, left hand, right arm position or less torsion in back and shoulders due to have the guitar in a more central position?

I'm just two weeks into the conversion to the left leg position. I feel that my posture is much better. I also feel that I have better control of the guitar. And my left hand is better angled toward the neck.

I did have a couple of issues; bare F chord took a little time to adapt and a bass run down the A string and up the E, in first position, is still taking a little work but it's getting there.

I play with a strap and with the peghead almost even with my chin and the guitar stays in almost the same position when I stand.

With a lower body that wide, do you still need a foot stool when playing a jumbo in classical position... or do you in fact need an extra-high one?
